Putting Out the Fire: 4 Proven Strategies for Hiring and Retaining Security Talent

Saturday, 11 July 2020 – 1:00 PM (CDT)

When hiring people for our security teams, it’s common to look for candidates who can “hit the ground running” because it costs too much to get newbies up to speed. But all too often, the result is that we toss them into the fire, burn them out, and move on to the next one. It’s a failing cycle.

This talk will reveal how Red Canary built out and executed a new training model to drive retention and operational effectiveness. Learn how to apply a repeatable process to help new analysts of any skill level become fully functional and self-sufficient within a month. Whether your team is rapidly scaling to meet business growth or just getting off the ground, you’ll walk away with actionable tactics to build out your team—and keep them.
