Security is at an interesting crossroads. At a time when everything is changing, the realization of the importance of security is increasing. That increases pressure on us to improve our efforts -- while trying to do more. Often with less.
To capitalize on the leadership opportunity, stop calling it a gap. Whether talking about the steps to take or the people you need, it’s not a gap. Others facing similar challenges of finding, grooming, and retaining talent ( a near universal problem) see it as an excuse.
The solution, then, is about a blend of people, process, and technology. Sounds oddly familiar. But it means reconsidering the tools and techniques. Pushing security to the edges. Allowing others to assume the responsibility. Often, they want it.
Are you ready to lead the change security needs?
