CIO’s deserve respect? Are you respectable and what are these characteristics? SAS70

Keith Harrell Profile: SAS70ExPERT

SAS 70 audits focus on COSO controls and examine the leadership experience of executives and training. CIO’s and CSO’s march to the executive suite takes many paths. Opportunities to lead in the C-Level suite come in many forms….some are perhaps luck, others are from angels, but what job titles lead to the CIO or CSO role? According to a recent survey, most CIO’s have a background primarily in IT. In recent, weeks, I have begun to question this polling as I have met several well-respected CIO’s who understand strategy and operations, but do not have a clue as to operating systems, applications or how networks function. In this same poll, only 15% of CIO’s and CSO’ came from areas outside of IT. What side of the fence do you stand on? Do you think an extensive background and training in information technology makes a difference as a c-level executive? As I consider myself a hybrid with a little knowledge and experience on both sides of the fence, I wonder what is respectable?
