InfoSec leadership roles increasingly require a mix of technical, business and leadership skills. Based on interviews with CISOs and executive recruiters specializing in infosec, IANS has developed a competency framework capturing these skills and aligning them to major roles security leaders fill within organizations.
The following self-assessment is the first step in using this competency framework to develop your skills in a targeted way.
The self-assessment is designed to identify which security leadership role – Technical-Focused, Business-Aligned, Business-First or Agile -- your skills most closely align with. It will also help you pinpoint areas of strength you want to bolster, and opportunities for development that can help you build toward your career goals.
Upon completion of the self-assessment, you will gain access to your personalized IANS Executive Competencies dashboard including the results of your assessment contextualized around our research findings.
Expect the assessment to take approximately 20 minutes.
