Does your cyber team have the right people in the right places to maximize performance?

When a cyber team has to jump into action quickly to collect, analyze, respond, and remediate issues, having a balanced team, with respect to team roles, makes all the difference between a successful containment or extended down-times, data loss, or stock price plunges. Attend the BELBIN-based discussion and follow up CYBER webinar to learn strategies for recruiting and building highly performing teams — balancing role and expertise needs with skills, strengths and behaviors to go the distance together.

DeeDee Smartt Lynch, President and Chief Resource Investigator at Smartt Strategies, has been helping organizations build stronger, better teams for the past 10 years. She developed her passion for the Belbin philosophy while living in the United Kingdom.
