When it comes to cybersecurity, people are an organization’s greatest asset—after all cyber attacks are people attacking people, not machines attacking machines.

However, managing your cybersecurity team has its challenges and they are often more acute due to the worldwide skills shortage and the increasing sophistication of cyber criminals.

In this 60-minute webinar, a panel of cybersecurity experts will discuss five unasked questions about cybersecurity people management:

  1. Do cybersecurity certifications create flight risk?
  2. Do penetration testing and ethical hacking courses actually teach bad guys?
  3. Is cybersecurity a differentiator?
    1. Does it improve your organization’s position or make you a target?
  4. Do cybersecurity certifications really increase an individual’s earning potential?
  5. Should organizations “hack back”?
    1. Is it unethical to preemptively hack?

Register today to join Global Knowledge as experts Dave Buster (LinkedIn profile), Brad Puckett (LinkedIn profile) and Ted Dziekanowski (LinkedIn profile) describe actionable steps you can take to navigate these minefields within your own team and organization.

Even if an organization has already set up Shared Services, it is possible to jump in and realign based on these principles.

  • So, what are the keys to developing successful Shared Service organizations?
  • What are the benefits of getting it right?
