Mansur Hasib is the author of the book Cybersecurity Leadership. He is the only Chief Information Officer (CIO) in the world with 12 years experience as CIO, a Doctor of Science (DSc) in Cybersecurity (IA), CISSP (cybersecurity), PMP (project management), and CPHIMS (healthcare) certifications, who has written two books on the subjects of cybersecurity leadership and culture and healthcare security and privacy. He teaches cybersecurity to graduate students and practicing executives at UMBC.

A global thought leader, Dr. Hasib has led technology and cybersecurity strategy for almost 30 years in healthcare, education, biotechnology, and energy. He is a frequent speaker at local, national, and international conferences in healthcare information technology and cybersecurity and privacy. 

For his doctoral dissertation in 2013, Dr. Hasib examined HIPAA and subsequent laws and conducted a national study in US healthcare and examined the relationship between cybersecurity culture and cybersecurity compliance and published the results in a book titled Impact of Security Culture on Security Compliance in Healthcare in the United States of America. This work was cited in the references for ISC2's new healthcare security and privacy certification.

In March 2014, he published Cybersecurity Leadership: Powering the Modern Organization. This book will be featured at the Baltimore Book Festival in September 2014. Written in plain business language for anyone to understand, in this work he shared his cybersecurity leadership model and life-long learning with many examples drawn from his practical experiences, research, and observations. His leadership model is applicable in any organization. Written from the perspective of a CIO, the book has received positive reviews from high school and college students as well as business, IT and cybersecurity executives.
