Professionals in critical cybersecurity positions could benefit from tapping into the existing resources established by SOX, COSO, and COBIT, among others. The confluence between cybersecurity and traditional IT security can create a bridge to shore up systems security. Cross-training, continued learning, mentoring, domain expertise mapping, and other approaches will drive cybersecurity innovation. This talk will highlight common ground between cybersecurity and traditional IT security, and provide attendees with the insight and clarity to move from strength to strength in the worlds of cyber and traditional IT security.
