The Digital World War: Why you need military veterans on your security team
During this talk we will highlight some of the competencies needed for an effective cyber warrior and compare them with the skills forged through combat readiness training in the military. Furthermore, we will explore how we can create better security teams within our respective organizations to meet today’s information security needs. Finally, we will look at how cyber warfare is replacing traditional battlefields and how today’s transitioning veterans are looking for ways to continue the fight in the civilian world.
