Infosecleaders at OWASP NJ/NJ – Tuesday and Wednesday
March 28, 2011
Wanted to let everyone know that I will be presenting the “CEO of You, Inc. – Your Career Is Your Business” presentation at OWASP NYNJ Metro chapters on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. On Wednesday, I will be speaking toward the beginning fo the agenda – so definitely get there early if you can.
The presentation is designed to help you, the information security professional manage your career as if it were your business, and you were the CEO.
Here is the full abstract:
The information security profession is becoming increasingly competitive. In the employment market place of the future,certifications and education alone will not be enough to ensure achievement of your long term career goals. The increasing popularityof the profession and the competence of your competition will require that you take the reins of your career.
As companies focus more on profits and revenues, they are diverting resources away from the development of their employees. This attitude has greatly impacted the shared loyalty between employee and employer. In the future, the more effective you are in the management of your information security career, the greater the likelihood that you will achieve professional satisfaction. In essence, your career will be your business, and you will be the CEO.
The goal of this session will be to provide you with a framework for managing your information security career. By relating the different components of career management to traditional business functions, you will get a detailed understanding of how your career should be managed and how you can move past your peers by more than just luck. Subjects covered will include career planning, career investments, effective career marketing and branding, position selection and compensation negotiation.
You will leave the session with a solid foundation to enable you to better achieve your long term career goals and increase your satisfaction with both your current job and with the jobs you select in the future.
I will be happy to take questions during the meeting and after my presentations, provided that time allows.
Hope to see you all there.
