Ten Practical Ideas For Creating An Attentive and Supportive Organization: Sales & Marketing For the Security Team - Glenn Miller (Central Ohio Infosec Summit 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Ten Practical Ideas For Creating An Attentive and Supportive Organization: Sales & Marketing For the Security Team
Glenn Miller

Executive - Session #2 - Glenn Miller Funding for adequate security is always a challenge--and a growing one--with the threat environment constantly growing. But the skills needed to provide and manage a security function do NOT include "Sales and Marketing" expertise! All organizations have a limited amount of funds to invest internally, and all functions have to 'compete' for their share of those funds. Competing for funds is not like 'running in a race' but rather more like 'selling better'--having compelling or persuasive arguments to justify investment. This session will focus on 10 very concrete and easy-to-implement ideas for building better awareness, appreciation, and support for the security function. These ideas and tactics are not unique to security, but rather represent successful practices of business groups in large organizations--with special utility to IT and IT-related functions.
