Building Your IT/Security Career by Taking Risks

So often, IT and Security professionals are focused on eliminating risk. However, as a career path, perhaps you should embrace it. Join our panel of accomplished IT and Security pros who have made taking risks an integral part of their careers. Sarah started her own business, Chase left the Analyst community for the private sector, Mike went from a startup to a F100 enterprise, and Den left the world of big enterprise to join a startup. Learn how these leaders advanced their careers treading non-traditional paths, and how you can too.

Viewers will takeaway:

  • An understanding of why advancing your career is not at odds with advancing the goals of the business
  • Why focusing on business outcomes is critical – even when you are a technology/security practitioner
  • The importance of using technology you already own to achieve outcomes (vs. buying a shiny new object)
