We Put The Success in Succession Planning - With Malcolm Harkins

The Well Aware Security Show

We know that there's a huge talent shortage in cybersecurity, which leads to high turnover. This makes succession planning even more important because we know that we have to manage the "churn" on top of everything else. Veteran CISO and Cyber Luminary Malcolm Harkins joins the show to talk about how important succession planning really is, how to do it really well, what to do when you mess up. As Malcolm says, "You can't talk you way out of something you behaved yourself into."

Ventures

After hearing about Malcolm’s background and career path, we examine the history and principles of cybersecurity for startup founders, individuals, and anyone helping to usher in the Web 3.0 era. Visit https://satchel.works/@wclittle/ventures-episode-40 for detailed notes and links to resources (videos, articles, etc…) mentioned. You can watch this episode via video here. In this episode we cover the following:  1:58 - Sol tee-up, background, and welcome of Malcolm4:06 - Malcolm introduction / background / career journey.5:30 - Stumbling into the security industry. 6:11 - Cybersecurity pros make their wages by fixing symptoms, are they not actually working to make their jobs go away?

(History lesson)15:16 - There is a reinforcement mechanism into the system that keeps cybersecurity pros in their jobs. Some organizations are underfunded, but that’s not the primary problem.

Looking at data like it’s a toxic element.

We Can No Longer Draw Lines In The Sand: Executive Cyber Protections At Home Are Not A Question | A BlackCloak Story In Three Chapters | #1 With Malcolm Harkins And Chris Pierson

ITSPmagazine

Most organizations recognize the importance of keeping their executive staff healthy and safe to protect the business from exposure and risk. However, many limit their understanding of the physical world, providing healthcare and personal security as the company's two standard services.Those that have matured to a point where they also look at this from a cyber perspective — providing cybersecurity protections for their executives while at home, on personal time — may not realize that they are blurring the lines between individual responsibility and corporate liability.In this episode, we explore the role the organization should — and shouldn't — play when it comes to protecting their executive team from cyber threats and attacks, which could have a catastrophic impact on the business of the cybercriminals succeed in their endeavors.The answer to this challenge isn't as easy as removing the lines altogether or drawing a hard line and then setting controls, responsibility, and liability on one side. This said, the answer doesn't have to be hard either — it just requires a clear understanding of the problem and helping the organization achieve its risk management objectives while relieving them of the responsibility — and the liability.At this point is not a matter of if, but how."I think many executives get it, the question just becomes, is there risk lense somehow minimizing it because they don't fully comprehend the implications? And if that's the case, then I think it's incumbent upon the CISO to give them the scenarios and the data."—Malcolm Harkins"I think that last point is critical, absolutely critical. You want this solved, but you don't want the company employees directly solving it for the executive team."—Chris Pierson(This contains promotional content: learn more)Guest(s)Malcolm Harkins, Chief Security and Trust Officer, Cymatic (@ProtectToEnable on Twitter)Dr. Chris Pierson, Founder & CEO at BlackCloak (@DrChrisPierson on Twitter)ResourcesLearn more about BlackCloak and their offering: https://itspm.ag/itspbcwebDownload and read the complete 2020 edition of The State of Personal Cybersecurity and Privacy report by visiting https://itspm.ag/34jTqvoCatch the full 3-part series by visiting https://itspmagazine.com/their-stories/how-and-where-you-draw-the-lines-of-protection-matters-a-blackcloak-storyAre you interested in telling your story?https://www.itspmagazine.com/telling-your-story
