#109 - The Right Stuff

Success leaves clues, but sometimes we limit ourselves by only looking close by for them.  This week, we pondered what business skills are essential for a successful CISO, and then extended the search to some non-traditional sources to find some very relevant advice.  Take the time to listen and do a self-examination (you don't have to submit for a grade :) and see where you could boost your skills portfolio to increase your success as a security leader.  Some of the essential skills we discuss on this episode of CISO Tradecraft are:

  • Be a leader
  • Manage money and resources
  • Differentiate yourself and your message
  • Communicate with clarity and emphasis
  • Delegate and hold subordinates accountable
  • Build a personal network
  • Mentor your team
  • Be adaptable
  • Be sensitive to cultural and political issues
  • Watch the details and ensure your management makes informed risk-based decisions &
  • Know your limitations
