    Presentation Title

    How to be Awesome at your Job and Get Paid More – A Study of Cyber Responsibility and Talent

    Abstract

    Cybersecurity professionals have a difficult and thankless job. We are expected to keep our skills sharp and do more than our fair share of work. But we rarely get the resources required to do our jobs properly, let alone the acknowledgement and spotlight that reflects the critical work done in keeping organisations safe from cyber-attacks. Based on studies conducted across APAC, this session outlines a clear path to being more appreciated and effective, build better teams and cyber programs, and ultimately getting paid more.

    Topics covered include: communication, perception, dealing with management, how to report on the things that matter, attributes that professionals need to exhibit and develop, diversity, and areas of demand.
