Re: Senior Mgmt requesting their CSO to leave

There's not really much they could do without his cooperation.  That
would require something like a Non-Disclosure Agreement, but getting him
to sign one while being forced out (or after) isn't very likely.  That's
also not to mention what his consideration for signing it would be (a
common reason NDA's/non-competes are thrown out is lack of
consideration/compensation for the employee).  

It could be argued that the type of information discussed is a
proprietary trade secret...but in order to get an injunction against him
to stop, there would first have to be proof that he's disclosing it,
then prove its proprietary information.

so...the short answer...nothing.

What could Senior Mgmt put in place to prevent their former CSO from
regurgitating their material for the former CSO's next employer ??  (i.e
sales plan, sales methodology, security policies).
