Information Security and Other Stories from the Real World,
Nov 01, 1996
What is it like to be an Information Security Officer in the business world? How deep must one's technical knowledge and skills run? What kind of other jobs exist for information professionals in the "real world." Should one set one's sights on a career in management, or is it better to remain a technical expert? What characteristics make a good manager? How much technical expertise must a manager have? What kind of compromises in information security must be made for the expediency of the business? I will address all these questions and more in this colloquium. But don't be surprised if you leave with more questions than answers.
