Are CISO Skills Different from Techie Security Skills?

Presented by

Todd Fitzgerald

About this talk

You have been a techie and developed great security skills. Now you want to move into management, should you? Will you be happy there? How will your life change? Is this a good move? How will you get there? This session will examine what this career choice really means. The session will explore the differences between operating as a technical staff vs the functions and challenges a manager faces. This will discuss the competencies required and will help those trying to decide upon this career choice. The presenter has held Global CISO/security leadership roles across multiple organizations, after starting out as a techie computer programmer and then DBA. The “Skills” factor is one of the ‘7-S Framework Applied to Cybersecurity Leadership’ factors (strategy, structure, systems, staff, skills, style, shared values) as detailed in the new book CISO COMPASS: Navigating Cybersecurity Leadership Challenges with Insights from Pioneers available at www.amazon.com/author/toddfitzgerald . This session will explore the Skills component for the CISO to develop a successful program.
