Chief Information Officer (CIO) is a job title usually given to the senior executive responsible for the information technology and computer systems in a given enterprise. As a high-ranking executive, the CIO reports to the chief executive officer (CEO), chief operating officer (COO) and / or the chief financial officer (CFO).
