ITSPmagazine meets up with Marian Merritt, Lead for Industry Engagement at NICE/NIST during AppSec California, to discuss diversity and education. Some of the main points covered during our chat:
- With less than 11% of ethnic diversity and less than 10% of women in the cybersecurity field, diversity is one of the strategic goals in the National Initiative for CyberSecurity Education (NICE).
- NICE has community-based approaches to get more people aware of cybersecurity careers, leveraging the local community education opportunities and getting them in touch with employers.
- Raising awareness about security is something that every citizen needs to take upon themselves for their own personal safety but also their children's safety.
- The day you get hacked or the day you get breached is far too late to then consider security.
Your sales and marketing teams' ability to work together to achieve core revenue objectives is a perpetual challenge within organizations. When it comes to lead qualification and follow-through, both camps often point fingers at each other. Sales says marketing delivers bad leads; marketing says sales doesn't follow up on leads they provide. However, 61% of B2B marketers admit to sending "leads" directly to sales without qualification, according to a Marketing Sherpa Marketing Benchmark Report.
No longer can marketing hand over a list of names of people who downloaded a white paper and call it good. And to top it off, the lead qualification problem is compounded by sales and marketing being measured against conflicting metrics.
But what's the solution? This webcast will help you understand the truth behind meaningful and effective lead qualification. See what's possible with better lead qualification and help get sales and marketing out of their silos.
