Effective Security Leader Training: A Business-Driven Approach with Practical Management Techniques
March 26 @ 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Trainer: Philip Byer
Being an effective security leader is a challenging prospect. As demand for security professionals increases, technical contributors ﬁnd themselves thrust into management and leadership positions. Often these contributors feel poorly equipped for their new roles. Unfortunately, they grapple for answers, resources, and support in a haphazard way, lacking clarity or effective practices.
This training outlines a method of practice which produces professional value over time. It addresses the differences between technical contribution and management, and between management and leadership. The intended audience are those hungry for guidance, those starting to figure things out the hard way, and those who simply want to deliver outstanding value to their employers and the security profession.
The topics include concrete recommendations about how to communicate with peers, increase inﬂuence with executives, build relationships with one’s team, introduce risk to the decision-making process, and streamline business innovation. If you’re ready to meet others who are wrestling with similar issues and are driven to perform as a leader, let’s get started.
