ITSPmagazine Talk Show | Episode IV

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, Is An InfoSec Life For Me?

There are things that must be said about this industry
and we are going to say them.

Selena Templeton and Sean Martin

Watch and listen to this episode of ITSPmagazine’s Unusual Gathering to hear how our InfoSec community is coping with the stress and fatigue that comes with the job and often follows us home to our family.

Here are some of the things we covered during this conversation:

To be a more effective CISO, you need to nurture relationships, be able to talk to people, and work together.

The irony of success in cybersecurity is that if you’re doing things right, you’re invisible.

One of the issues in this industry is that people are unable to see their career path.

A job in cybersecurity is basically 24/7, so how do you cope with that – the hamster wheel, the dark side, the defender fatigue?

Balancing your work life and personal life is crucial: faith, exercise, time off, healthy personal relationships, good community, open-minded management, being able to talk it out.

Everybody should have a mentor, someone who’s got their back.

Leadership is a key point up and down the chain.

Despite the difficulties, a career in cybersecurity is definitely worth it.

Cyber Hygiene And Digital Resilience To Withstand A Cyber Attack

In the past, nation states such as North Korea and China had a very limited ability to respond to the U.S.’ military attacks or sanctions.
