Fix toxic security culture before it kills innovationJun 29, 2021
🎙️🦁 Bullyproof hears from the ROARsome Jinan Budge - Principal Analyst, Forrester Research ... this is a cyber security special episode where we explore toxic security cultures, based on research Jinan published last year entitled: "Fix toxic security culture before it kills your innovation." 🦁 🎙️
CAVEAT: Although this conversation was very specific to cyber security, it applies more broadly, so any organisation that may be experiencing toxic behaviours - or is tolerating a 'brilliant jerk' - can benefit from Jinan's fantastic insights.
Watch the full conversation:
"I knew from experience that we have a busted culture. You can hire as many people as you like, they are going to get into the security teams and experience the hideous toxicity and the way that we exclude people and the way that we can often be quite bullying towards one another."
