Building Your Cyber Security Team

We are not all born from kings like Leonidas, but we have the honor and responsibility of protecting our organizations as he protected Greece from the Persians. When building my team of (cyber) Spartans, I look for one key trait – PASSION. Cyber Security teams are more Spartan size than Persian Army size. We have to equip our teams with the tools, training and authority to protect our organizations. The Spartans used a round shield, spear, short iron sword and a formation called a phalanx.

As Cyber Warriors, we defend our organizations with everything we have and a few key tools.

What are your organizations three key cyber security tools?
