Re: becoming a CISO
Yes indeed lqadishtu570, you got it. Multi-faceted / multi-dimensonal, which is what you do appear to be (not being facetious or snarky).

Many people just do not get it, they "have" to be or become broader in their outlooks in life AND at work.

Good comment.  Patrick

becoming a CISO
I am a True CISO who needs to be able to do so, more so Publically. I have been doing so using Face Book Postings, as well as in many talks with people concerning many issues, both Politically, Religionwise, and things that Affect us all on an almost daily basis. I am an excellent public speaker. I can speak both diplomatically and socially. Down to Earth Communication reaches out to many, and that is what is needed to reach out to more than what many see as over educated belligerance.
