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 Paul Maurer, President of Montreat College. Paul’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around ethics, the importance of character, and how the research he led in creating the Carolina Cyber Center clearly revealed that no matter how advanced technology becomes, it’s developed by people and operated by people, so the problems are human: and only a human solution will do.
One of the things Paul told us was: “If you don't have people with the right character and ethics as your cyber leaders, as your cyber operators, your technology doesn't matter very much.” We agree!
