Cyber-Ethics is what Separates Security Personnel from the Hackers says Reciprocity.


Reciprocity published an article earlier this year titled The Importance of Ethics in Information Security. It’s a wonderful statement of the difference between a cybersecurity mindset and a hacker mindset.


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 Five: Hiring the Right Cybersecurity Behaviors. This chapter begins with job role descriptions and then moves straight into the crucial need for diversity to avoid groupthink. It then steps to the concept of “getting comfortable with being uncomfortable” and addresses the importance of core values and the crucial nature of ethics and moral compass in cybersecurity. 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 John Kolb, VP of Information Services & Technology and CIO at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. John’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around ethics and the importance of giving straight answers in the cybersecurity environment.


One of the things John told us was: “I look for people that are first and foremost highly ethical. If you want to stay in Catch Me If You Can-type of mode then go find a job somewhere else, because I'm not going to waste my time with that. I want people that give me straight answers and are going to be very upfront about what they're doing, why they're doing it and so on.” 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.

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.
