CyberSaint Security: "Benefits of Cybersecurity Investments Must be Framed Around Enterprise Goals"
CyberSaint Security discusses two key questions in a 2021 post:
First: “With the ever-changing landscape of cyber risk, how can security teams demonstrate the business value of security programs?”
Second: “How can CISO’s underline the importance of correct procedures that need to be followed company-wide?”
Their analysis is well worth the read!
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 Seven: Onboarding Cybersecurity Hires. This chapter takes a comprehensive look at teambuilding, both within the cybersecurity group and also across all business units. 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 Michael Woodson Director of Information Security and Privacy at Sonesta International Hotels Corporation and Member of the Cambridge College Cybersecurity Advisory Council. Michael’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around how cybersecurity teams interact with the other business units across the enterprise.
One of the things Michael told us was: “We're not in the business of "no," we're in the business of "right." The relationship that you have with the business unit is to tell them that you want to do the right thing; that you're meeting the standards; that you're putting the right security controls in, so that you're in compliance where it is required. But also at the end of the day, we want to make sure we're providing good advice on how to put something in, in a secure way. Team empowerment is what it's all about.” 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.
