"No, but..." Still Doesn't Work: Security Leaders must become Business Leaders presented at ISSA 2019

by Marnie Wilking,

Summary : Many security professionals have chosen to evolve from "No" to "No, but..." Business partners still hear "No." Security can be a unifying force. We have our fingers in every aspect of the business, giving us the visibility and position to drive collaboration and provide change leadership for a variety of initiatives across the organization. Using the cornerstone principles of Context, Creativity, Collaboration, and Customer Service, we will discuss strategies for using “security as a unifier” to facilitate partnership across disparate departments, break down the silos, and transform from a security leader to a business leader. It's time for Security Leaders to lean in, say Yes, and be Business Leaders.After completing this session, attendees will- understand the skills and knowledge security leaders can bring to the business- understand the benefits of being a transformational leader and a security leader who says "yes!"- be able to apply the concepts of Context, Creativity, Collaboration, and Customer Service within their organizations to evolve from a security leader to a business leader.
