Summary : The technology landscape is evolving faster than ever, and CISOs are challenged by the consequent increase in security threats and a lack of skilled manpower to diffuse them. Many organizations find recruiting talent and developing IT teams almost impossible due to budget constraints,talent deficiency and the changing profile of the skilled IT professional.
At Michael Kearn’s former organization, he came up against a dire need for talent development. To tackle that challenge, he designed a low-cost, sustainable training program that evolved the capability of his talent pool and showed exponential improvement in workplace reviews. Join Kearn as he describes his method for aligning a mentoring program with the workflow process, accessing budget-friendly training resources, and engaging talent of all levels in new initiatives to support the business.
