Let’s talk about mature security skills and models. It’s time to put way the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD), and focus on strategic, transformational skills necessary to secure today’s organizations. Join CompTIA’s James Stanger as he discusses the most in-demand security skills. James will also report on the current “war for talent,” which is a root cause of some the myriad problems we’re experiencing.
James will discuss ways that today’s mature organizations are engaging in useful capacity building with their employees, and why this places their organizations higher in the Global Cybersecurity Index. Today’s workers know how to articulate their strategic value to a business, as well as place the correct security controls on a cost-aware basis. There are many root causes for today’s immature security practices – join us to learn more about approaches that help organizations identify those root causes and move forward with confidence.
