hello
00:03
and welcome back
00:05
to revenue protection as a C. So
00:09
in this module you will learn
00:11
how to stay informed. You must meet often
00:15
the importance of communication and some resource is to stay in the know,
00:26
stay informed, meet, often
00:29
identify key individuals in East department and schedule monthly meetings to build stakeholder. By in, you will need a champion in East Apartment
00:39
so one want. That will give you honest feedback
00:42
on what's not working, what's working
00:46
as well as areas of improvement.
00:49
These meetings don't have to be formal agendas
00:52
and can be a simple is grabbing tea a coffee.
00:55
And I know a soon as you probably saw this slide, the first thing that you need, I thought about. I have too many meetings already. So why do I want to schedule another meeting
01:07
as security practitioners? Especially if you're see So
01:11
we have the, you know, moniker or reputation of sitting high and our, you know, our castle and just dictating policies
01:23
down and not really thinking those through.
01:26
So if you take a collaborative approach
01:30
and you meet with stakeholders of department heads,
01:37
always a good start because they hear from their direct reports on what's working was not working well. They may have metrics, but if you get in the habit of a regular cadence with these individuals,
01:52
you will break down that barrier of security, always being
01:57
the dictator.
01:59
Oh,
02:00
policies and procedures.
02:01
True enough, there are things that have to be done because of compliance or regular regulations, Um, especially if you're in a highly regulated industries such as finance or health care. But the way that you communicate those out can go
02:23
a great deal beyond just pushing a button
02:28
and implement something in a vacuum that will affect the entire organization. And that's also very risky. In today's fast pace of business, you're a button push away from promoting yourself from internal see so to,
02:46
you know, see so on vacation.
02:51
According to a 2017 survey from the Information System Security Association in the National,
02:58
the most important qualities of a successful see so
03:02
leadership communication skills and a stroll relationship with businesses Business executive
03:10
43%
03:15
of the respondents say communication skills
03:19
were the most important.
03:21
So think about that, um, they're going back to what I just proves, he said, has taken a collaborative approach and meeting with individuals. How you communicate will directly set you up for success or failure in your tenure as a C so at company. Don't be,
03:40
you know, the the guy that's in the or gal this in the castle fortified,
03:47
and basically nobody knows if your inner out. But the way they know you're there is if, um, you know, privileges gets taken away or their jobs to become more difficult. Don't be that individual
04:09
being a C so will require you to basically be a lifelong student. It requires you to stay up to date on news and trends. I found that one of the good ways to do that outside of platforms like Sai Buri,
04:25
um, our podcast, blog's and audio books. If you came up through the technical track to the sea, so roll. There's a certain level of anxiety that you may experience is coming along with not being hands on or very technical anymore. But blog's and pie casts are a good way
04:44
to ah, you know, help you keep your ears to the ground and learn was trending
04:48
also mean with your teams, you're more functional. Team your analysts. They're also usually pretty up to date on trends and what's going on because they have to be, especially in regards to emerging threats. The cybersecurity industry is ever changing,
05:04
and, you know, the top organizations and security leaders,
05:09
Um, we must stay ahead of the curve.
