A culture of safety and security can be constructive and highly leveraged as a strategic part of an organization’s goals. One of our guest faculty members, Shawn Galloway, provided us access to a useful self-assessment linked to this blog.
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.
