During the second part of our interview, Anthony M. Freed managed to get me to share some insights from my work on the role of the Value Imperative in security.
From the interview:
To accomplish this translation effectively, security professionals need to understand what it is that is most important to the organization, and then be able to prioritize actions based on risk factors and potential impact to the business.
Santarcangelo said this can be accomplished by adopting the Value Imperative Mindset, a strategy comprised of five factors that work to build business value and assess projects and programs objectively to determine how they contribute to building business value.
“It’s a move away from counting hours, tasks, and deliverables and towards always building business value. For most people, this is a radical but liberating shift in the way we approach our work,” Santarcangelo said.
This was an exciting interview. I look forward to sharing my work. It’s coming soon!
Connecting our work in security to the business, to others, by demonstrating value is the true imperative. My role is to help ensure that we not only master the imperative, but effectively communicate the value of security in the process. Together, they form the basis to change behaviors.
Share with colleagues and let me know what you think!
The best is yet to come!
