Cyber security is not a mature field like some other areas of business such as finance. Digital and cyber security fluency is not a given across organisations and in the board room, skills shortages are an issue, and we don’t have a cyber-equivalent of a financial balance sheet. This means that some aspects of leadership are even more important in cyber security than in other fields. Dr Haigh will cover the importance of having a clear vision and strategy, a strong governance model and reporting to support data driven decision making. She will talk about how your communication style can influence your effectiveness as a leader and how to go about building a really effective, engaged team. Cyber security is often viewed as a very technical field, but people are at the heart of it, so the right leadership, culture, behaviours and communication are absolutely essential to deliver an effective capability.
