    Developing and Retaining Excellence in a Competitive Market

    It's no secret that we are currently experiencing a critical shortage of trained and experienced cyber security practitioners.  The competition for qualified team members is fierce and long-term retention of your valuable team members is a key success factor for creating and maintaining a first-rate security team.  Exceptional security personnel are looking for opportunities to perform interesting and challenging work.  Too often those same personnel are relegated to perform mundane and repetitive tasks that fail to adequately engage and develop them professionally. CISOs/CSOs wishing to retain and mature their organizations should look for opportunities to drive efficiencies and optimize their security program while minimizing the administrative burden on their teams.  

    Low-cost, high-return activities such as establishing formal or semi-formal collaborative relationships with their peers for mutual security support and training opportunities combined with conducting security program rationalization and optimization projects can deliver significant value and introduce fresh insight into your security program.  Security executives should also consider how machine learning and Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) solutions may reduce time spent on lower skill, repetitive tasks, and improve overall team competency and retention.
