  3. Facebook CISO Alex Stamos May Be Leaving the Company Later This Year
    - Here’s the key takeaway: “[Editor Comments] [Paller] I know of no other conflict that has caused as many CISOs to leave or be terminated than the question of how much to disclose in the aftermath of a breach. The only survival strategy we have seen is to find a way to keep the lawyer (and sometimes the communications director) out of the meetings. If that is possible, the CISO’s key job is to encourage senior executives to understand how little chance there is that the company will be able to keep a lid on the information and how much worse late disclosure is than early disclosure.”
