We are faced with multiple attack vectors in the physical and logical world of technology. We are also faced with operational attack vectors due to the “tyranny of the urgent” demands of our organization that often allow us to maintain and manage rather than innovate and change. One of the voices that will be attending has a seat at the table of change by helping to design managed service models that might help disrupt or Uberize our current practices. He wrote an article recently that will give you insights into how he thinks and where we may be going.
The Great Conversation will include two full days of thought leadership, best practices, and case studies in execution. Throughout the conference you will begin to feel your personal and professional flywheel begin to turn. And like any flywheel, we predict it will create a multiplication effect in your vision, mission and execution. Our conversation concludes with a powerful roadmap for your program’s digital transformation. You will not want to miss it. Here is an interview with Joe Fairchild of Microsoft’s Global Security Center of Innovation to give you a taste of what is to come.
Many times we follow the crowd. It is human nature. It seems safe. If it works for them, it should work for others. In the following interview you begin to understand that this is not what makes this man tick. Like many others in The Great Conversation, he sees a disruption occurring in how we assess and value communication within our security program.
We can never anticipate the impact a great conversation will have on each of our leaders and their teams. We do know that over 70% will initiate an innovation or change based on their experience. Last March, one of our CSOs did something more. He offered to host a great conversation at his Center of Excellence outside Dallas on May 21, 2019. We interviewed him and found out he was still coming to the March 4 and 5 program in Seattle. You will have a chance to meet him soon.
There is a persistent message from our executive community. It is hard to find and keep good people. This is constraining the ability for leaders to create a consistent level of security program performance. But we keep using the same methods and experiencing the same deficit. One of our Great Conversation faculty helps us MInd the Gap at our next forum on March 4 and 5 in Seattle.
Throughout history, technology has disrupted our notions of what is possible and the way we live and work.
Technology is agnostic. That is, it is unbiased towards its use. It can be used to further our interests and make life easier and more enjoyable. It can improve our organizations processes and profits.
And it can also have unintended consequences.
Scott Koslosky, futurist, speaker, and founding partner of TriCorps Technologies was interviewed last week in this blog, and now has forwarded on a podcast where he explores drone usage and misuse.
Disrupt. It is not a comfortable word. It implies that our natural order of things has changed. It implies displacement; a feeling that we are no longer relevant. Scott Koslosky understands this. He has been at the forefront of disruptive models that have threatened the way we identify people in roles, place them in disciplined and measurable processes, using the tools we can afford to purchase and deploy. And that is why he is at the beginning of The Great Conversation in Security on Monday, March 4. The integrated Security Model he will describe will be a platform that we will build on for the following two days. The following is an interview with Scott Koslosky.
