When it comes to building an effective cybersecurity team, it isn't just about acquiring the right technology and business skills, says LinkedIn CISO Cory Scott. It's also about obtaining the right people who have defined their own personal narrative.

In a video interview at RSA Conference 2018, Scott defines this narrative and discusses:

  • Why this concept is relevant to security leaders;
  • How to build a team of defined narratives;
  • How this approach redefines team diversity and improves effectiveness.

As CISO and LinkedIn, Scott is responsible for production and corporate information security, including assessment, monitoring, incident response and assurance activities. Previously, Scott was at Matasano Security, where he led the consulting teams based in Chicago and Mountain View. He has also held technical positions at @stake, Symantec and ABN AMRO/Royal Bank of Scotland.
