Just an interesting snippet from The Register (emphasis mine):

RSA has appointed its first chief security officer, three months after a data theft on its network contributed to the hack of the world’s biggest defense contractor, and possibly other important customers.

I’ve been telling people for ages that having a CISO is normal good practice these days. ¬†Evidently nobody told the security industry.
