Oh Look! Another Clueless CISO On LinkedIn! πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ



I just can't...

How do these people get into these roles?? How do we sell to people who don't even have a grasp of simple capitalism?!Β

Here's how I'd respond if I sold cyber security solutions:

"If cyber security was so cheap and easy to fix, why can't you fix the problem internally then?"

@paddyΒ its almost ironic. Naomi, you’re in need of a product/service. Yes you work for a nonprofit and probably don’t have to deal with lots of the stress and pressure those in the business world have to but guess what you don’t like that it costs a lot for quality that’s the beauty of a marketplace, go somewhere else. Cause to me you just look like a fool. Rant overΒ

β€œIf you really cared about #cybersecurity, wouldn’t you be willing to spend money on it???” Can’t wait to go read the 198 comments.

Ok, so cobble everything together via open source and maintain it? That's likely going to be equally expensive and less secure. Hopefully this CISO isn't in my territory anytime soon.

Why doesn't she take a salary cut and divert the money to the cybersecurity budget if she cares so much?

I work in this space and can tell you, it's actually extremely cheap to run decent set up with cybersecurity. It gets expensive when companies aren't proactive and get lazy. It's always a basic question of, what's the cost of doing nothing?Β

I've heard she's not really representing the field well, so don't worry.

The private photo, but public LinkedIn profile. Should you do this if you're hot as a nice surprise once connected? Or if you're ugly to remove bias?

Does sales certification really help or just grooms your LinkedIn profile. Thoughts?

What work chat channel do you use? We use discord which is a bit...dodge. We are trying to find another one but would like opinions and why!
