Summary : When charged with defending the integrity of an organization from threats, breaches and a plethora of other challenges, it can be easy for information security professionals to develop a pervasive, negative mindset about their role within the enterprise. Further compounding that negativity is a perception by others that security professionals are in the business of saying no. The challenge, then, is for CISO leaders to change these mindsets to successfully market security as a value add to the business, one that warrants investment and support.
Using examples from within her own organization to demonstrate the benefits of positive psychology, Kylie Watson will elaborate on the importance of removing the negative connotation associated with infosec, what she feels is the missing piece to a CISOs agenda, why success cannot be the prerequisite for happiness, and ultimately how your organization will benefit greatly from rebranding security.
