As information security professionals, it never feels like we have enough people with the right combination of knowledge, skills and abilities to help us protect our information assets. To make matters worse, none of us have an unlimited training budget to train all the people in all the things we think they should know. So, what do we do?

Join us for a brief discussion of how one former higher education and State CISO approached these challenges, and lessons he learned along the way.

Join this webcast and gain practical insight into:

  • Partnering with and gaining the support of human resource professionals
  • Setting expectations for the allocation of information security training dollars
  • Helping your security workforce and your organization with career progression options that are aligned to your mission
