  • 7 Keys to Effective Leadership in Our New Normal - Here’s what it takes to lead a team in 2020 and beyond:
    • Leaders must be proactive in their efforts, and deeply care about how the people around them are doing.
    • Leaders need to share how they’re feeling, as well.
    • Leaders must create a safe environment where people feel a sense of belonging.
    • Leaders have to solidify their mission — and live it out in the world.
    • Leaders must be willing to adapt.
    • Leaders have to remain optimistic about the future, without sugar-coating the present.
    • Leaders must over-communicate.
  • How CISOs Can Play a New Role in Defining the Future of Work - Rather than just reacting to security issues in the COVID-19 era, CISOs are now in a position to be change agents alongside their C-suite peers. Here are four ways they can successfully lead with change and act as more strategic C-level partners:
    • Carve Out More Time with C-Suite Stakeholders
    • Shift Focus from Your Team to the Company as a Whole
    • Balance Remote Work Vulnerabilities with Transformational Change
    • Look to Hire Globally and Expand the Team
  • The office is dead. Get yourself a backyard shed - As working from home turns into a semi-permanent situation for many, the search is on for private workspace. Some people have opted to take over a bedroom or basement to set up their new home office. But others are heading to the backyard.
  • The 7 elements of an enterprise cybersecurity culture - A cybersecurity culture is one that spans the entire organization -- across teams, processes, metrics and tools. Incorporating the following attributes and best practices throughout an organization is one of the greatest challenges facing security leaders, but doing so has never been more essential:
    • Leadership
    • Cross-functional liaisons
    • Education
    • Cross-functional liaisons
    • Attitudes and behaviors
    • Ecosystem
    • Metrics
  • Managing risk: People-centric cyber security solutions - How to expand cyber security awareness?
    • Stories. One way to get the message across is by using stories. Most people inherently relate to stories more so than data. Incorporate some humor into your stories too, as studies indicate that laughter leads to learning.
    • Gamify security awareness. Consider using a leader board to track who’s most effectively implementing cyber security best practices. Competition converts, as no one wants to be seen as the person who’s not a team player.
    • Create cyber security challenges. You can pit one department against another and see which one is better at __(fill in the blank, based on your own organization’s needs)__. Reward the team that wins. This can lead to behavioral changes and information absorption.
    • Onboarding programs. Consider putting cyber security front and center during employees’ first days or weeks on the job. A cyber security program during onboarding will set the expectations for the rest of employees’ tenure.
