As Simon Sinek states, “Start with Why”. As a professor, I teach various graduate level courses. The one thing I see in common with all of them are students starting with “what”. Students are great at performing literature reviews, but they tend to be weak at explaining “why”. This presentation will help new cybersecurity professionals develop the critical thinking skills they will need to be successful in cybersecurity. This presentation will also explain how to effectively communicate to leadership (and peers).
