What would you ask for if your organization came to you tomorrow and said they'd provide you with the resources and the authority you need to "fix" information security? The chief information security officers from Stanford, the University of Maryland, and the University of Pennsylvania have all experienced such a moment in the past 18 months, which they describe as both electrifying and terrifying.
