  1. 1. What Is Security? - The work you do in cybersecurity is critically important to the future of humanity, but nobody ever tells you that. It's true, and you need to know why.
  2. 2. The Channel Angle: How Cybersecurity Changed Through The Pandemic - ‘I’ve never been convinced there’s been much of an actual perimeter, but it’s clear that the pandemic has further eroded what’s left. Employees work from anywhere and BYOD is often not controlled by the organization,’ writes EVOTEK’s Cesar Enciso.
  3. 3. How to Team Up with IT for Cybersecurity - As more devices are connected to the internet, cybersecurity threats mount. Facility managers must work closely with IT to ensure networks are secure.
  4. 4. Time to Bring the Cyber Security Technical Debt under Control - Stop buying more tech for the sake of it and start focusing on the decluttering of your cyber security landscape.
  5. 5. Executive Cybersecurity Leadership Program launches – The Source – Washington University in St. Louis - A new Executive Cybersecurity Leadership Program is being offered by the McKelvey School of Engineering’s Technology & Leadership Center at Washington University in St. Louis. The program aims to give senior-level executives in cybersecurity the tools and knowledge to develop cybersecurity policies and their own leadership approach.
  6. 6. 10 Effective Tips On How To Lead A Strengths-Based Team - Ten Tips on How to Lead Your Strengths-Based Team: 1. Identify your team's shared values. 2. Delegate based on team members' strengths and encourage job crafting 3. Identify your strengths as a leader. 4. Identify the strengths of team members 5. Assign strengths-based roles to team members 6. Set strengths-based goals for your team 7. Provide strengths-based feedback 8. Celebrate team achievements 9. Provide strengths-based development opportunities 10. Prevent team burnout
  7. 7. In a Hybrid World, Your Tech Defines Employee Experience - One of the big questions many leaders are facing now is: how can we meaningfully communicate, collaborate, and connect in a hybrid (or remote) environment? As companies compete for talent and adapt to new ways of working, the technology they use has become the dominant feature of the employee experience — a place where many companies are falling short. Employers should start by asking employees if they have the right tools and technology to do their jobs, especially in a hybrid or remote work environment. Once employers understand opportunities to improve digital experiences, it’s key they also take action toward closing any gaps, and let employees know that they’re being heard. Finally, it’s critical employers keep pace by giving employees a forum to provide feedback, continually understanding how they are engaging with the tools offered to them and where to make improvements.
