with Naomi Buckwalter, CISSP CISM Director of Information Security & IT at Beam Technologies
How many times, as an Information Security professional, have you wanted to stand up in the middle of a meeting and shout… You need more security! Can't you all see that security is important?
The excuses to ignore Information Security, our work, and our priorities to safeguard our companies can no longer be ignored.
So, you ask: how exactly do you win hearts and minds for Information Security within an organization?
Watch this month's Rising CISOs virtual networking event to hear from vCISO and Director of Information Security, Naomi Buckwalter, as she shares how to earn respect as an Information Security professional in an organization.
