Do you want to become a CISO? Are you looking for a more senior leadership position?

Many others are as well. The last few years have seen an explosion in the hiring of newly minted CISOs to varying degrees of success. Organizations looking to fill important security roles as well as individuals looking to occupy these roles must understand that jumping into a seemingly good opportunity with the wrong skillset will lead to failure.

Get ready for the next step of your career by learning how you can lead transformation for your team, your organization, and ultimately yourself.

This presentation is based on material from MGT514: Security Strategic Planning, Policy, and Leadership.
