Re: Look for Core skills

"4th Interview - Management Discussion" I like your interview process. Some of these candidates may not even make 4th interview

Re: Look for Core skills
"The business needs an outcome" That is true. One thing we need to get everyone understand that preventing from a breach is an outcome for the business, that is mostly not visible enough.

Re: They may not exist so you need to teach them right
"My usual response to hiring managers is - "do you really think the guy who invented 'x' is certified in it?" :D" Good point and most likely not. Invention requires new ways of thinking.

Re: We need to improve the educational pipeline and provide freelance opportunities
"For example, companies will benefit from sharing a virtual CISO by getting expert advice at a lower cost than full-time" This is really a great idea. That would benefits both companies and the candidates.

Re: Bah. Loaded descriptor.
"Are we talking "able to do the job," or are we talking "meets 100% of all the supposed qualifiers that HR thinks the job requires"?" Really good point. There should not be a gab between those two actually.

Re: They may not exist so you need to teach them right
"The survey presented states that 70 percent of companies require certifications for a position. While that is not 100%, " Good questions. Sometime certification does not really represent the skills and knowledge unfortunately.
