SecureWorld Boston 2016 Recap

SecureWorld 2016 was another great event for our local chapter. The SecureWorld coordinators are always supportive and accommodating!

For many of us, this event is one of the best networking opportunities we get and at a great price. This year was our 4th year having a booth and it may have been our most successful one as far as getting new people to sign up for our chapter communications. Please congratulate the team!

During our Chapter meeting on the first day of the event, Mark Aiello, President of Cyber 360 Inc, presented “Show Me the Money”, in which he discussed the findings of the (ISC)2 Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) and his professional experience in finding qualified candidates for Information Security in various business sectors. He had expressed that having certifications is beneficial, but one that stands out is the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) which is managed by (ISC)2.

Mark also spoke about the conundrum of finding qualified candidates to backfill the workforce. More often than not, the company sets high requirements for the candidate that often mimic the resume of the employee that just left. Some companies need to remind themselves that they shouldn’t replace their responsibilities of management, training and employee mentoring for finding a candidate that does not really need any of that to get started. If you have strong training and mentorship programs, you can mold a less senior employee that has a strong ambition into a highly technical one that will meet and exceed your requirements over time. The employee may even become more loyal and will payback what is invested into them several times over!
