Skill Level Beginner
- Back in the day, Infosec hiring managers were on the lookout for candidates with strong technical skills. Today, they're still looking for those technical skills, but they're starting to look for an entirely different skillset as well. They're looking for candidates who can communicate with everyone from end users to C-level executives. Understanding the technical side of things is only the first step. As an information security professional, you need to help business leaders meet their objectives. You need to be able to answer deeply technical questions in plain language and to understand the big picture of how your actions have a strategic impact on your company's day-to-day business. Hi, I'm Jerod Brennen. And I've worked in security long enough to have earned every gray hair in my beard. I'd like to invite you to join me for my course on LinkedIn learning as I walk through the most critical soft skills that information security professionals can bring to the table. As well as techniques on how you can practice those soft skills before applying them in the workplace.
