Cynet has introduced a new community dedicated to those security leaders who are outside the Fortune 2000. The group offers a place where security professionals can find the support, answers, and community that reflects the needs and realities of members. Leadership at larger organizations tend to have multiple avenues, networks, and communities available to them, and they also have different challenges. Smaller, resource-constrained cybersecurity teams often have tougher and more unique issues and fewer places to go when they need to leverage the expertise of others to gain solid advice from those who have gone through similar situations.
Managed by vCISO, cybersecurity researcher, ethical hacker and Cynet Chief Strategy Officer Chris Roberts, the community provides senior cybersecurity professionals with several membership benefits. To start, new members have the opportunity to build a network of colleagues to collaborate with. Likeminded peers and collaborators in the community will support others through shared experiences, insights and guidance. As part of the CISO community, members gain from actionable intelligence and tactics to better educate and improve their defensive strategies for a more resilient cybersecurity infrastructure.
Cynet has responded to the industry’s need for greater collaboration and support with the sponsorship of this new space by and for resource-constrained InfoSec leaders. It is a real space for security leaders to come together and discuss, learn, and engage in valuable conversations with peers. The CISO Community formally opens its doors on April 29th and those interested can join at the following registration page: https://go.cynet.com/ciso-community.
“This is a safe space for those folks often overlooked or forgotten by our industry,” said Chris Roberts, Chief Security Strategist for Cynet. “As an industry, we spend too much time chasing the trophy clients and ignoring everyone else. That paradigm has to shift and this is meant as a first step in the right direction to help every one else that’s been forgotten.”
