What is the future of our industry and how do we grow our businesses while providing cybersecurity?
By: Solutions Granted
Crean believes, "The technologies we have chosen to allow us to confidently look at information and create meaningful actions, which deliver the outcomes our partners and their customers expect." Crean and Garrison agreed that open API's are important, but what is vital – is the people that drive them. Talent. What talent looks like and where to find it. Are the standards the same as 20 years ago? No. The standards for finding talent have changed as quickly as the malicious actors have changed their approaches on attack.
Finding talent is no longer about degrees or years of experience. It was more about finding the individual with the drive, passion, and ability to communicate openly in our field and with those we serve. Service or to defend comes naturally to Crean, a Veteran, a US Army Ranger. Crean drove the point home, "we can't focus on just the technology. The fact that many people can get distracted by new and exciting technology or what a particular tool accomplishes - but it's the people and process behind the solution that makes the biggest difference."
Crean stands by, and his team supports, "everyone within an organization is responsible for security and at all times. Ownership for complaints, mistakes, misunderstandings - is vital for growth. Having strong technology, with a strong team of likeminded individuals, you can never go wrong."
