Organizational leadership must be cyber knowledgeable. Today 80% of security breaches are caused by internal staff with leaders delegating cyber-security programs all too often.

How can you hire, train, develop, and coach professionals, all while keeping cybersecurity foremost in mind?

“Organizational leadership must be cyber knowledgeable. Today 80% of security breaches are caused by internal staff with leaders delegating cyber-security programs all too often. Why is this happening? How can we fix it? These are the challenges companies are facing that need to be addressed as the best cyber-breach protection,” says Deidre Kashou Diamond, CEO and founder, Cyber Security Network. “Communication and teamwork are the ways to better cyber security.”

Addressing the topic of staffing the best cybersecurity professionals, Diamond will present at the upcoming Connected World Conference, being held February 23-24 in Birmingham, Ala.

Diamond, having spent 20 years in employment/technical staffing, cyber security software development, and large-scale Website development, was inspired to combine her backgrounds to change the way cybersecurity professionals conduct job searches. Her goal is to offer an international Web solution for all cybersecurity professionals that makes job searching and hiring simpler.

The 2015 Connected World Conference aims to promote awareness for the importance of cybersecurity in today’s connected society. The event will focus on the data being aggregated from the IoT (Internet of Things), and the importance of securing the connections providing that data.

“It takes top leadership to get involved in hiring and training. Much like Jack Welch sparked leadership change in the ‘80s, we need the same kind of strategic thinking now if we are going to combat cybercrime. Ultimately, what we are talking about is finding the right kind of unique leadership that will guide cybersecurity professionals to think better and faster than the cybercriminals. That leadership thinking comes from the top down,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “Deidre’s expertise is sure to help you understand how to hire, train, develop, and coach professionals on cybersecurity.”

Held in partnership with University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (The Center), the Connected World Conference will gather professionals together, creating a call-to-action and developing a take-away security strategy to protect our connections to the nation’s most critical infrastructures. The event will be held February 23-24 at the Birmingham Marriott in Alabama.

The 2015 event is sponsored by Altair Semiconductor, Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Gemalto, and Synapse Wireless. To learn more about the 2015 Connected World Conference, please visit the event Website.
