Episode 39

Program Your Program

This week on The Great Security Debate we have arrived at one of our favourite episodes of the year (and what is and will be an annual thing!) when Forrester Senior Analyst, Jess Burn, returns to the show to share this years recommendations for security programs.

An overarching theme of the report is to use the captital that the CISO has acquired over the past few years and build out your program to where it needs to be. AKA, “strike while the iron is hot”

More detailed topics including:



  • Career paths and changes in comp methodology for security teams need to change


  • Security Awareness needs adjustment for work for anywhere


  • Minimum viable security - it’s definitely not just “barely secure”

And a reminder that Dan, Brian and Erik will be doing a live episode of the podcast at the upcoming Michigan Women in Technology ExecutiveManagement Conference on May 5 in Novi, Michigan. Tickets for the whole conference are now available (https://MCWT.org) and the agenda for the day is great. See you there
