Security Leadership Series: Take a Partnership Approach to Cybersecurity
Unfortunately, some cybersecurity professionals approach their work with an “us against the world” mentality. They’re constantly frustrated because others within their organization don’t seem to understand why cybersecurity is important. They feel like they are always having to fight for budget, attention, and relevance, and it makes them defensive about their cybersecurity program and their own efforts to address security issues. Not only do they find themselves in an adversarial position with some business leaders, they think of vendors largely as a necessary evil that sort of helps them accomplish their goals as opposed to a potential partner in their endeavors. As someone who has worked as a cybersecurity leader within an organization and as a vendor, I can tell you firsthand that such a mentality is one of the most dangerous ways to approach your work. If you want to build the kind of comprehensive cybersecurity program you envision, you can’t go at it alone. You’re going to need help from people outside of your department.
