Walk through the show floor at ISC West in Las Vegas next month and you’ll see hundreds of security products peddled by vendors wanting to sell you the “latest and greatest” in security technology. But sometimes, you don’t need technology as much as you need someone to sit down with you and have a frank and honest conversation about what you should or should not install in your enterprise. Then you can talk technology, right? Of course, it all depends upon your situation, your environment and the risks that you are trying to mitigate, but who wants to be sold something that they don’t need or can’t use?
For the next generation of enterprise security leaders, is there a clear path forward to success? Enterprise security leaders discuss mentorships, education, certifications and the skills new CSOs and CISOs will need to succeed in their evolving roles and bring value to the business. But the problem is: with existing security leadership roles varying so widely, is the development of a uniform skill set even possible?
