How to Become "The" Security Pro

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Three security professionals walk into a bar: A Security Pro, THAT Security Pro and THE Security pro.

I used to only be 'A' security pro - as a result I didn't get any of the recognition or reward I worked towards. Not even my mother used to visit my blog. In this talk, I distill some of the key skills and traits taken from personal experience as well as industry professionals to present strategies you can employ to increase your value internal to your organisation as well as in the industry. For most, simply putting in the hours isn't enough to move up from being A security person to becoming THAT or even THE security person.
