Does it take a highly specialized IT degree, or an MBA? Does it really matter how many certifications you have? Do you need to attend law school? Do potential employers look at how much code you can write, or if you have toiled away in the security field for years fighting off attacks and strengthening the network?

Join Dark Reading Editor Sara Peters and a special panel of security experts as they discuss what it takes to become the next CISO of your company. This new installment of Dark Reading Radio broadcasts live on Wednesday, Dec. 17, at 1:00 p.m. EST (10:00 a.m. PST).

Go to the Dark Reading site to find out more about this week's radio show. Following the broadcast, listeners can ask the editors and guests questions during a special live chat session on the website.

During the show, Peters will talk to two experts who have years of experience in the IT security field and have gone through the complicated process that leads to the appointment of a CISO.

Peters' first guest is Lee Kushner, the president of LJ Kushner & Associates LLC, who recruits information security pros. In addition, Mark Potter, who Peters profiled as part of Dark Reading's recent How To Become A CISO series, will talk about what it took to get to the top security spot.

This episode of Dark Reading Radio happens Wednesday, Dec. 17, at 1:00 p.m. EST. Listen to the broadcast and then join the discussion.
