Infinit-O identifies essential skills for great cybersecurity teams.


This excellent article from Infinit-O outlines how to build a great cybersecurity team. Their key starting point is: “[H]having a team of cybersecurity experts in your company creates an additional layer of security for your business and the clients you’re supporting.”


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 which is a deep dive into the teambuilding process. We cover shared intention, team empowerment, and how to integrate cybersecurity across all business lines. 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 Adam Lee, Systems Security Director at Dominion Energy. Adam’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around how core values, corporate culture, and empowering your cybersecurity team correlate directly to how well systems are protected from compromise.


One of the things Adam told us was: “The threats evolve as fast or faster than your defenses. So every aspect from funding to staffing to what defenses are in place to why you are doing what you are doing is a constantly evolving puzzle. You cannot have staff that are inflexible... you cannot have a vision that is stagnant or that is fighting the last war... you have to be nimble and evolving while still doing everything you did before.” 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.
