M.Eng in Cybersecurity Policy & Compliance (Geogre Washington University), CISSP, CISM, MCSE

Over the past two decades, organizations have spent billions of dollars developing protection technologies to defend their critical information assets. However, large-scale data breaches are happening almost daily, and diverse actors are moving with lightning speed to steal money, intellectual property, valuable information, customer information, and state secrets. Several new breached databases are being sold in the dark web while we are complaining about non-existing cybersecurity skills gap which was caused by unrealistic job description that looks like a unicorn.

Our attackers don't care about education, experience, certification, type of industry one worked and all sorts of tricks that make it practically difficult for exceptionally talented people to come into the industry and defend our critical infrastructure.

We must close the recruitment gap, communication gap, and mentoring gap. We advertise for an entry level or junior level positions, and we demand CISSP - can only get it after years of work experience.

We demand 2 + years of experience and all sorts of skills junior professionals cannot practically accumulate in college or in a year. We have a seriously broken system in selecting, recruiting, and strengthening our cyber defense. Beza helps recruiters, job seekers, and senior management how to close their workforce challenges.

 

As CrowdStrike co-founder and former CTO Dimitri Alperovitch said back in 2016 , 'There are only two types of organizations: those that know that they've been hacked and those that don't yet know,' What sounded as a prediction then now is every business' reality. The SolarWind hack and its impact is the perfect example.

 

One of the biggest problems we face in the cybersecurity community today is communicating credible cyber threats, risks, vulnerabilities, sustainable strategies, and data breach consequences to firms' executives and general staff.

 

Mentored by top thought leaders in the industry with global experience that spans four continents, Beza designs and delivers actionable and compelling executive presentations to influence executives who drive strategies, employees who click that phishing link, and security staff that is experiencing unprecedented professional burnout..

 

Beza speaks to influence human behavior because often there is insufficient attention paid to the" people" equation. There is just no software patch for human error.

 

Beza believes that reducing the risk of breaches requires changing behavior and reducing the number of opportunities for people to make mistakes.

 

His insight and presentations will enable cybersecurity programs to be exponentially more prepared and subsequently more successful in preventing and detecting breaches.

 

 

The conventional compliance-driven awareness effort should evolve to a strategic effort to change organizational culture combined with enforceable policies and dependable technologies.

 

You need qualified and experienced master communicator to facilitate your next event.
