SEC/Elsevier partnership to enable an education in security

Alliance means tomorrow’s security and business leaders will be armed with first-hand knowledge of security and risk management best practices

As Hayes wrote in an April STE feature article (pick up a free copy at ISC West booth 12147), “We as industry practitioners must take an active part in providing current and emerging business leaders with tested and validated security knowledge best-practices presented in a business management context.”

“It has taken us 10 years to get this knowledge base together,” Hayes says. “It’s not just our faculty’s knowledge, it’s a whole bunch of people’s knowledge—that’s the beauty of it.”

As more students come up through the ranks of business schools, being able to draw on that knowledge through the SEC and Elsevier should give would-be CSOs and CEOs the tools to create a new breed of business and security executives—while advancing our industry as a whole as well.
