Highlight one:

👉🏻 ”The most important skill sets for being a CISO are being business savvy and having an understanding of how the business operates. You also need to grasp the value of your solution if you want to grow in the position of a CISO.

Technical skills are foundational; you must understand the ins and outs of software and security frameworks, but most importantly, you must also be able to apply all of your technical knowledge to the business”

Highlight two:

👉🏻 ”One of the most interesting methods to learn about cybersecurity development could be through cybersecurity vendors”


“Because those vendors are financially incentivized to know what is going on in the cybersecurity domain and address it in real-time. The knowledge that they have can be very educational.”
