How do you become a CISO? It doesn't follow a linear pattern as many other professions. There are many different paths and there are many different entry points.

Check out this post for the discussion that is the basis of our conversation on this week’s episode co-hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), the producer of CISO Series, and Steve Zalewski. Our guest is Yabing Wang, CISO, Justworks.
