Now available for presale on Amazon, Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity is packed with insights into solving the cybersecurity hiring crisis including Chapter One: Identifying your Cybersecurity Hiring Need. This chapter begins with company culture and how to assess an organization's cybersecurity and IT personnel requirements, and then moves into budgeting processes and the importance of communication both within cybersecurity teams and across all business lines. This book also includes insightful commentary from CIOs, CISOs, Talent Recruiters, Cybersecurity Professional Service Providers, Consultants, Private Sector Attorneys, Academics and U.S. Government Officials.
Today’s highlight is the contribution from Jason Meszaros, Director of Technology Infrastructure & Information Security for the Minnesota Twins Major League Baseball Team. Jason’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around the problems which come from solely focusing on technical skills to the exclusion of everything else during the hiring process.
One of the things Jason told us was: “I want people who can actually come in and communicate and articulate what the issue is, and how they're going to resolve it. That doesn't necessarily mean it's always technical, because not all problems that you solve are uber-technical problems, some of them are people issues. People make mistakes - people open the wrong link - and we have to resolve that and make sure that if they click ransomware, they know how to react, who to call.” We agree!
Here’s a bit more about the Can. Trust. Will.® System.
Building a successful cybersecurity team is no longer optional. Cyberthreats evolve at a staggering pace, and effective cybersecurity operations depend on successful teams. Unfortunately, statistics continue to illustrate that employers are not finding the people they need. The Can. Trust. Will.® System guides the C-Suite, HR professionals and talent acquisition to build unbeatable cybersecurity teams through advanced hiring processes and focused on-boarding programs. Additionally, this book details how successful cybersecurity ecosystems are best built and sustained, with expert analysis from high- level government officials, Fortune 500 CSOs and CISOs, risk managers, and even a few techies. Those already in the field (and newbies) will glean invaluable knowledge about how to find their most effective position within a cybersecurity ecosystem. In a tech-driven environment, cybersecurity is fundamentally a human problem: and the first step is to hire for the human element.
