Speaker: Lori Harmon - VP of Sales, Contrast Security
Description: Although the CEO of Microsoft may disagree, your professional destiny is not best left up to fate or “karma.” How can your boss or anyone else know what you want if you don’t ask? And according to a Frost & Sullivan report, the area in which today’s information security professionals need to improve most is communication. Whether it is for a promotion, raise, flexible hours or something else, making it known to those that can help you realize your objective is key. In this webinar, Lori will give real life examples of various “asks” that were successful in her career, as well as provide recommendations on how women in information security can ask for – and get – what they want.
