Why the culture of cybersecurity is broken–and how to fix it (fastcompany.com)

Nate Fick makes a strong case for a culture-change, in order to attract more talent and bring more rubber on the road: ‘Changing the culture of security can encourage promising new entrants to seize the chance to learn and to become productive quickly, even if they initially lack deep experience. It can help bridge the gap between security teams and the management teams they work for.

And to give those teams a shot at success, it can change the norms so that everyone is focused on building tools that are easy to learn and use. Only then, with a broader talent base, communicating well and equipped with more usable products, will we have a fighting chance at reversing security’s systemic failure.’ Via Fast Company.
