Reg webinar: Tune in for some knowledge on how to become an effective leader in IT security

The benefits of pragmatism

Got Tips?

Promo With companies of all sizes anxious to protect themselves from the growing danger of cyberattacks, what does it take to reach a leading role in the security field?

Tune in to our webinar on Thursday 21 March at 17:00 UTC to hear Scott King, an experienced systems engineer and former chief information security officer at Boston-based security firm Rapid 7, share the wide-ranging knowledge he has gained over his long career in IT security.

People can take different paths to a top position in security: some go directly from analyst to leadership, others have a more technical background in general IT, or excellent tactical skills acquired in a consultancy or vendor role.

You need a more pragmatic approach when communicating with business leaders about security risks and how to deal with incidents than the easy one you might take when talking to technical teams. How do you make the mental shift?

Scott offers valuable hints and tips on how to balance strategy and tactics, how to deliver at every stage, and how to understand the benefits of pragmatism in your security role.
