When we think of ethics, we too often think only about avoiding wrongdoing. In fact, our ethical traditions ought to lead us much farther, to pursue meaningful objectives in trust-based relationships with others. Ethical leaders bring out the best in those around them, by acting in ways that promote trust and engagement. Nowhere is this more relevant than in the world of information security, where justified trust is much more powerful than even robust constraints, and where teamwork is often at a premium.
Join us for a lively discussion of ethical leadership concepts and principles, applied to the world of information security. Learn techniques for building teamwork, such as how to make challenging decisions together as a team, and how to have even difficult conversations in ways that actually strengthen working relationships. Learn to persuade in order to promote true cooperation, rather than command for mere compliance.

- Improve your team's performance thorugh ethical leadership.
