The ten provoking tenets of a "Successful" Security Professional
Success is a concept that carries different meanings for different individuals. While there's a plethora of advice offered by industry peers and leaders, often echoing the same principles, there remain unique elements that are frequently overlooked.
Moving beyond traditional career advice, this presentation will talk about ten provocative tenets designed to challenge the status quo of what it means to be a successful security professional.
Through this intentionally provocative exploration, I aim to illuminate those unsaid yet critical aspects that contribute to the making of an exceptional security professional.
As someone who shies away from self-proclaimed success, my intention is not to lecture from a pedestal, but rather to share thought-provoking insights that are often thought but rarely voiced.
Prepare to confront uncomfortable truths during this talk, truths that may very well be the catalysts you need to redefine and achieve your version of success in your career.
