Dr. Eric Cole continues his discussion of the path to becoming a CISO in this episode of Life of a CISO. The path to becoming a world-class CISO begins with more than just technical and strategic abilities. What you need is a world-class CISO’s approach, focus, and attitude. Your mentality is the most prevalent obstacle to achieving your dream job. “I don’t think I’m CISO material,” said one student, according to Dr. Cole. The issue preventing you from gaining your dream CISO job is your lack of self-confidence. Believe in yourself, and success will follow.

Dr. Cole discusses the five challenges, his own insights, and suggestions for how to improve in each area. The incapacity to communicate is the most difficult challenge to overcome. Listening is more important than speaking when it comes to good communication.

Tune in to this week’s episode to learn about the other obstacles that prevent a CISO from becoming world-class.
