CyberSecurity & Your Professional Life: A Value-Added Approach

Cybersecurity is a high growth field, but an inexact science -- an  amalgamation, if you will, of theories, principles, and best  practices pulled from the realms of quality, performance excellence, and change management.  Explore how these  bodies of knowledge can be more effectively intertwined to craft  a solid roadmap using a ‘value-added approach’ which guides both your customer solutions as well as your own career.
