Marketing and Selling Security

If you are a security professional, then whether you like it or not, you are in a position of sales and marketing. The challenge we face has always been deeper than figuring out what to do — we have to be able to effectively communicate that to our managers, our colleagues and our users/clients.

I just announced a new training program called “Speaking about Security” – and of course, I hope everyone wants to schedule me to work with your team. Eventually, we’ll even offer this as public training. That said, I am not the type to keep information and knowledge to myself.

I’ll start posting information for you to consider…

Let’s start with a marketing essential: Scientific Advertising by Claude Hopkins is a solid read (many would argue it’s a MUST read). The best part? It’s available on the Internet, for free: http://scientificadvertising.blogspot.com/

If you print this out, it’s about 40 pages long. Entirely worth the read. This will bring you closer to building the mindset to be a successful security 2.0 professional.

Tired of feeling defeated on Friday?

Where the stack of work to get done is bigger than what got finished. You dread next week before the weekend even begins.

It doesn’t have to be this way.
