Security and Privacy is front of mind for companies and individuals all around the world and we are in the midst of a growing debate. How do you propel your job forward to meet the changing job needs? What types of skills do you need to get where you want to be? How do you make sure your guidance will command the respect of your team and lead the team to achieve success?
We will discuss one path forward that involves a unique blend of law (litigation and transactional work), a career as a Chief Privacy Officer, Chief Security Officer, and General Counsel for high-tech companies. We will also discuss thoughts on education, experience, certifications, company sizes, sectors, and operational and management experiences and how these might be viewed by employers and how to make the best career choices going ahead. We will also focus on how to serve in a business enablement mode for future growth and your potential futures roles. Discussing where the CISO/CSO job is going and the skills needed for the 2020 positions in this field will be our guide on this journey.
