About us

With the fabric of our society now defined by the technology we use, the issue of cybersecurity has become more important than ever. Time and again, major cybersecurity breaches have shaken up the world, serving as wake-up calls for authorities and individuals to initiate measures to improve the security and stability of the cyberspace.

The threats we foresee are not expected to cease and one can only expect to uncover more calculated attacks on a wider scale. Therefore, there is a continuous need for providing unbiased and useful information to the professionals working in the critical sectors. To provide the cybersecurity experts key information and analysis to tackle the security challenges, EC-Council has created CISO MAG, an information security magazine for best practice, trends, and news.

CISO MAG is the handbook for Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)s, CXOs, and every stakeholder of safe internet. CISO MAG provides in-depth, impartial, business and technical information to the proficient ones in cyberspace. The magazine features news, comprehensive analysis, cutting-edge features, and contributions from thought leaders, that are nothing like the ordinary.
