The Seven Habits of a Successful Information Security Career Manager (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Seven Habits of a Successful Information Security Career Manager
Lee Kushner

        Due to the growth of the information security industry and the popularity of our profession, future competition for information security leadership roles will intensify.  As the number of qualified information security professionals grow, it will become increasingly more difficult to accomplish your long term career goals and objectives.   To succeed in the information security employment market of the future, you can no longer be “good,” you will have to be “better.”

        The presentation will demonstrate to the audience how to become more effective managers of their own information security career.  Topics that will be covered include career planning, career investment strategies, personal branding, and professional “network” development.  At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees should have the framework for building a career plan that is best suited to their personal career goals.

Speaker: Lee Kushner is President of LJ Kushner and Associates, LLC, an executive search firm dedicated to the Information Security industry and its professionals.  Since 1996, he has provided career management guidance to industry professionals at all skill levels.    He is a regular presenter on topics that include career planning, interview preparation, and employee recruitment and retention.   He is the co-founder of www.infosecleaders.com, a career advice resource for information security pros.
