[April] Chapter Meeting – Architecting your Cybersecurity Workforce for Blockchain, IoT, Big Data, and Everything Digital by David Foote, Co-Founder of Foote Partners, LLC

Technology’s role as an engine of enterprise, innovation, and competitiveness has caught many IT leaders unprepared. For years they’ve been slow to address persistent human capital problems: tech skill deficits, hiring/retention issues, pay levels, and murky career paths. This is strongly affecting cyber/data security organizations as cybersecurity threats continue to stun the industry regularly and as Blockchain , AI/Machine Language, Internet of Things, Big Data, and other digital innovation get traction. Bottom line is that the pressure to fix longstanding “people problems” associated with securing the enterprise has never been greater.

Coming to the rescue: Apply traditional architecture practices to cyber/data security human capital and workforce management. “Tech People Architecture” is proving to be the most effective solution for executing mission-critical IT-business initiatives such as cyber/data security. In this speech, industry analyst David Foote will define the pillars of architecting for security then describe the architecture and how it is implemented.
