Security leaders are under supreme pressure to build security programs that protect the business without disabling the business. However, the greatest impediment to success is not the technologies or regulations, but rather the people who must implement a security program. As a security leader, how do you communicate important risk, security, and compliance concepts to your team in a manner that inspires them to action?
The answer is Business Security Vision. This is a new approach to information security leadership. Business risk vision seeks to define your program through inspiring mission statements and problem statements. It then goes on to solidify those statements with clear plans and expectations that provide common objectives. Mostly, Business Security Vision establishes a clear, strategic vision for your security program in a way that aligns and inspires people.
In this presentation, veteran security leader, as well as a CEO, Andrew Plato will discuss how to use business security vision to improve the conversation with your team. We will discuss communication, leadership, and motivational strategies that clarify and simplify security concepts to drive maximum employee engagement.
