My take on CISOs

1. The vast majority of CISO's don't come from a software development
background (think network/infrastructure) and therefore a cheatsheet
would be of use to them. 

2. The vast majority of CISO's tend to wrongly separate security from
software development and therefore wouldn't even think to read SAMM. A
cheatsheet that helps bridge this wide gap is useful.

3. Increasingly, software development is occuring less and less within
large enterprises. I am finding that traditional OWASP topics aren't of
interest to many of the Hartford chapter attendees (the majority aren't
developers) and therefore we need to figure out how to appeal higher up
the foodchain.
