  • How to share security knowledge and techniques with IT and security team members.
  • How to learn from past mistakes in order to adapt and adjust to future threats.
  • Why it is important to keep tabs on objectives and progress to efficiently execute and achieve the mission.
  • How to understand the capabilities of a security team and compensate for its strengths and weaknesses.
