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 addresses how to articulate risk in a way which sharpens your ability to get budget approval for the people and other resources needed to be effective. It also deep dives into how behaviors correlate to successful cybersecurity outcomes. 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 Amanda Tilly, VP, Information Security Manager at OceanFirst Bank. Amanda’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around how technical skills, risk management, and behavioral characteristics should be balanced to achieve successful cybersecurity outcomes.
One of the things Amanda told us was: “In my opinion, information security is ultimately risk management. Sure, you need to have the technical understanding and layers of controls and tools to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover, but at its core, information security manages the risk to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of an organization's information. That understanding sets you apart in infosec; you can learn the technical aspects. It's those innate traits of wanting to learn, wanting to solve the puzzle, an ability to communicate clearly, keep calm under pressure, and a strong moral compass - that you need to be successful in information security.” We agree!
