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 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 Andrea Markstrom, CIO at Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP. Andrea’s contribution to Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity centers around the importance of differing mindsets and how a business approach can impact the performance of a cybersecurity team and raise the performance of a company.
One of the things Andrea told us was: “But I think it is so important to know your customer, know your business, so that instills confidence from them in you as their CIO. If you’re listening to them and asking them for their feedback and insights and bringing them along as a partner, that goes a long way. Instead of calling you for a gadget discussion, like what type of mobile phone should I get, the conversation changes to now, “Here I’m working with a client and we need a solution to a business problem.” 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.
