“IT is not a Cost Center” says Tanium

Tanium published an article in 2020 which has great tips on Cyber/IT budgeting.

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 focuses on understanding how deeply cybersecurity impacts all aspects of business operations and how quickly those needs can change. And it doesn’t end there. Chapter One also addresses compliance, budget processes, and the ways cybersecurity teams can be client-facing. 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 Stew Gibson, SVP & CIO of USI Insurance Services. Stew’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around how much has changed in data security over the years.

One of the things Stew told us was: “IT used to be perceived as a cost center and back-office operation. Today, it does not resemble that at all. Technology is very much customer-facing and perceived as a key to revenue generation. I think it is a terrific shift, and really provides a lot of value and excitement for our IT employees, me included. As our IT organization has grown, we have tended to hire people with broad business perspectives” 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.
