Building the Enterprise Security Team

I hope you’ll take some time and listen to my recent podcast discussion with Brian Contos, CISO of Verodin. We cover lots of ground during the interview, but I am particularly hopeful you’ll listen to my advice on building a world-class enterprise security team. I truly believe that successful security programs must focus on the basics. And I try hard during the discussion to provide concrete examples of exactly what these basic considerations would be, such as:

-Making sure teams understand their roles and responsibilities (and so many enterprise security teams simply don’t take the time for this important step)

-Focusing on foundational issues and culture (and this is truly required to construct an effective enterprise security team)

-Keeping processes simple and maintain open systems (which is hard to do for most technical CISOs who never saw a system that was not complex enough for their taste)

-Building sensible defense in depth architectures (which has implications for how your staff is organized around a good enterprise security program)

You can listen to the podcast here or directly through iTunes, Spotify, or Stitcher. You can also read the podcast transcription here. I hope you enjoy and benefit from the discussion!
