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 Six: The Interview, and Chapter Seven: Onboarding Cybersecurity Hires. After the behavioral interview, which is detailed in Chapter Six, we move to Chapter Seven which is a deep dive into the teambuilding process; it’s where the whole Can. Trust. Will.® System begins to come together. Also included are 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 Marie Chudolij, Solutions Consultant at Google. Marie’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around the impact of behavioral characteristics on job performance.
One of the things Marie told us was: “You can teach people how to do things, but you can't teach people how to behave or change their personality. You can review a resume and it looks like they're going to be a rockstar, but when you have an opportunity to sit down with them, the personality may not necessarily be quite right. I honestly feel that personality is going to be far more important than your previous experience. Because I can teach most people how to follow new processes or work with new programs, but I can’t change who they are.” 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.
