CISO TRAINING - January 31st from 10 AM to 3 PM

Cisco's San Antonio Office, 18615 Tuscany Stone # 250, San Antonio, TX 78258

Instructor: Philip J Beyer, Vice President, Security Engineering, TSYS

Title: “Effective Security Leader Training: A Business-Driven Approach with Practical Management Techniques”

Abstract: Being an effective security leader is a challenging prospect. As the demand for security professionals increases, technical contributors find themselves thrust into management and leadership positions. Often these contributors feel poorly equipped for their new roles. Unfortunately, they grapple for answers, resources, and support in a haphazard way, lacking clarity or effective practices.

This training outlines a method of practice which produces professional value over time. It addresses the differences between technical contribution and management, and between management and leadership. The intended audience are those hungry for guidance, those starting to figure things out the hard way, and those who simply want to deliver outstanding value to their employers and the security profession.

The topics include concrete recommendations about how to communicate with peers, increase influence with executives, build relationships with one’s team, introduce risk to the decision-making process, and streamline business innovation. If you’re ready to meet others who are wrestling with similar issues and are driven to perform as a leader, let’s get started.

Price: $99 for ISSA members, $149 for non-members.
