Love the team focus!
I love that this article showcases the need for inclusionary teams! In a world where we continue to celebrate heroics, sleepless nights and the hero setting off alone, these leaders and pros know it takes a village! Great set of voices and a great article!

What I Wish I Knew at the Start of My InfoSec Career
To earn a reputation and succeed as a hacker, you have to find and exploit just a single vulnerability. To earn a reputation and succeed as a cybersecurity expert, you have to identify and prevent hackers from exploiting all of them. To penetrate a network, it's enough just one vulnerable element, to protect the network, you have to know all of them.

What I wish I knew when I started in cyber security...
As a cyber security leader, professional development for you, your team, your colleagues and everyone else is more important than knowing the latest zero day or how many enterprises were impacted by the Solar Winds incident. Cyber security professionals at all levels can benefit from allocating their time to professional development activities for themselves and their colleagues as one of their most important work priorities.

Isn't it funny how "diversity" is in everything these days.
I expect better from Dark Reading.  I find that the "diversity" argument is tired at this point.  The people who can do the best job, should get the job.  I've worked with outstanding people of all shapes, sizes and colors and have never had problems with corporate policies that hid the gender/race or other aspects of a candidate to remove all bias, either intentional or unintentional.  But what passes for diversity these days only weakens and divides teams.  The search to satisfy a quota and show that you are good people because you hired x rarely results in the best hire.  And with "near zero unemployment" in the industry as your articles confirm,  good candidates people just leave when they see your organization going this route.
