CSOs in financial services rake in up to $400K.
Chief Security Officers in the financial services industry that report to the CFO or COO earn up to $US400,000 annually plus bonuses. Meanwhile, CSOs in this sector that report to the CIO make considerably less — between $US125,000 and $US270,000 per year. CSOs in the telecom, utilities and manufacturing sectors commonly report to managers below the CIO level and earn even less - $US70,000 to $US90,000 per year.
