In today’s conversation, Candy Alexander from ISSA International and Jon Oltsik from ESG share how important their 3rd annual global survey on the life and times of cybersecurity professionals is to the InfoSec community, who should get involved, and how the coming findings can help the community help each other to make for a better experience as we all fight the good InfoSec fight.
Three guests join Sean Martin on today’s episode: Tanya Janca (Microsoft), Nicole Becher (NYU/NY-DFS), and Franziska Bühler (Swiss Post). While they are all hailing from different parts of the world, they come together (virtually) on a regular basis, focusing on helping engineering, operations and security teams establish a culture of business-driven security throughout the organization.
Are you tired of the same old stories from the InfoSec vendors? This panel of givers and receivers should make you chuckle as they tell their stories of success and failures in cybersecurity solution sales. Don’t drink the snake oil too fast!
