> This guide is specifically intended to help CISOs ( Chief Information Security Officers) manage application security programs. The guide is tailored to CISOs whose responsibility is to manage application security programs according their specific functions. A survey was done to understand how CISOs perceive application security so this guide can be tailored to their specific needs, roles and responsibilities. The aim of this guide is to help CISOs to take a strategic approach toward by application security by considering it as a journey and not as a destination. This guide specifically helps CISOs to deliver an application security program by starting from the creation of the business cases to get funding. 
> The key themes for these business cases are awareness of application security risks, compliance with security standards, security policies and consideration of the organisation capabilities in executing application security processes. This guide helps CISOs to prioritize investment in application security programs, tools and on what matters the most that is application security training and awareness of software developers and testers. Visibility to free OWASP guides and tools that can help CISOs in the pursuit of these goals is provided throughout the guide.
> The Application Security Guide For CISOs v1 is available now for consultation on wiki on the following link https://www.owasp.org/index.php/File:Owasp-ciso-guide.pdf 
> A print on demand book is also available on the following link http://www.lulu.com/shop/owasp-foundation/application-security-guide-for-cisos-v10-nov-2013/paperback/product-21288580.html
