The ability to communicate effectively with top executives and internal teams is critical to keep FUD or fear, uncertainty, and doubt from infiltrating your organization. Clearly articulating your cybersecurity health is imperative to align with top business objectives and is invaluable to ensure businesses maintain an “at fingertips” risk posture.  How will existing cybersecurity leaders help bridge the widening gap in talent, create a path for the next generation while continuing to evolve and mature their careers?
