Information security professionals' success used to depend primarily on their technical acumen, but the work environment has changed. Today, 67% of security employees interact with someone outside the security function at least once a day, and that figure is likely to continue increasing. These interactions represent the security function’s shift to a more consultative, integrated model - one in which behavioral competencies are more critical to security staff effectiveness than any other attribute.
Our research into building high-performance information security teams outlines:
- Quantitative insights revealing the competencies most critical to high-performance in the security function
- Case studies from leading companies for developing these competencies in security staff
- Best practice research into recruiting and hiring security talent with these competencies
