Interview: Tony Howlett, SecureLink
Managing 3rd Party Risk
IT and data breaches are going up every year and a large portion of them involve vendors or other third parties with access to enterprise networks and systems. Mr. Howlett will review the current state, examine a couple of high profile vendor related breaches for lessons learned and talk about best practices to limit 3rd party risk.
- THE ELEMENTS OF A GOOD COMPANY APOLOGY - To win back lost trust, it’s important to grasp a fundamental truth about apologies:
- When something bad happens, you must first decide if an apology is even warranted — sometimes apologizing is not the best strategy.
- If an apology is warranted, companies must then answer three key questions to properly craft a response:
- Do we tell the truth?
- On whose behalf are we acting?
- How do our actions benefit those who trust us?
- Are You Enabling a Toxic Culture Without Realizing It? - A strategy to help organizations identify how to prevent toxic cultures from taking hold:
- Identifying the Role You Play - There are two types of team members:
- Passive enablers are typically unaware of what’s happening.
- Active enablers do see what is happening but fail to take action.
- Taking Action - Passive enablers need to be visible with their teams to see what is going on. Active enablers need to speak up.
- Fostering Cultural Health - When leaders communicate clearly and actively demonstrate what will not be tolerated, employees understand that their concerns will be heard and taken seriously.
- 8 Ways Leaders Delegate Successfully - eEight practices of leaders who delegate successfully:
- They pick the right person
- They’re clear about what the person is responsible for and how much autonomy they have
- They make sure that team members have the resources they need to do the job
- They establish checkpoints, milestones, and junctures for feedback so that they neither micromanage nor under-lead.
- They encourage new, creative ways for team members to accomplish goals
- They create a motivating environment
- They tolerate risks and mistakes, and use them as learning opportunities
- There’s No Shame in Working on Vacation - If it’s a choice, a little work can be a joy.
