What if you had a guide that provided tools, timing, and assistance on the first part of your journey in a new cyber executive role?
If you didn’t have to figure all the steps that seasoned executives know to take, while you’re managing cybersecurity and possibly a new team?
Some things that new cyber executives struggle with, from those in the trenches today:
- Support from Business
- Backing for Plans
- Participation in Decision Making
- Engagement from IT
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.
To help you get started, here are a few questions:
- Beyond the job description – what does your leadership want you to achieve?
- If it’s not the job description – how will you be evaluated as an executive?
- How do you understand and shape how you are evaluated? (in a good, honest way)
- Who do you need to talk with to be successful? (If you guessed outside of IT, you’re on the right track)
- Do you think talking shop (specialist language for cyber) is going to get you there?
- How do you not ruin a chance with the Audit Committee or the Board (and end up taking a year to recover)?
And here’s the thing.
What got you to this point is only a small portion of what’s going to make you successful where you are now.
The good news is that you are not locked into any of your approaches in the past; this is the perfect time to recalibrate, retool, reorient to become someone who is viewed as a leader, not “that tech guy.”
Can’t think how to get started? Just a little worried that you’re not going to think of everything or have the blueprint, tools, and assistance to accelerate your progress and plans?
Worried the first breach will happen before you get that budget or staff you know is needed?
The Hundred Day Blueprint gives you the tools, techniques, and support to get you there.
