What can I do to ensure a higher position?

What ways can I climb the corporate ladder in a security job?

Thank you comment icon Hi Natilius - It is really crucial to have a short term and a long term plan for yourself, long term goals will make you think of big picture and short term goals will keep you motivated and will eventually help you in achieving long term success. Get inputs from a mentor, coach or your manager to ensure your goals are both ambitious as well as reasonable. Also keep networking and building connections, try to volunteer for high-visibility projects and keep up-skilling yourself. Pooja Passi

Jinelle’s Answer

Love the ambition! If you're looking to climb any corporate ladder, there are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Give your job 110% - volunteer for special projects, work groups, and to cover for colleagues who are out of office
2. Get to know your colleagues and managers - ask questions, show your interest in others, ask questions of your manager regarding their career
3. Network outside of your company and keep continuous education at the top of your priorities
Essentially, in order to progress in your career, you should have excellent communication and relationship building skills, be good at your job, and show initiative.
Good luck!

Genevieve’s Answer

Hi Natilius! What an interesting question. I would love to recommend this book that just came out by security expert Juliette Kayyem. She makes the case for a security mindset for everyone (regardless of which job we might be doing) and for security experts to serve in the very highest level of a company, like the "C-suite" with the Chief Executive Officer. It helped me define "security" in the most general sense possible and gave me some ideas for how one might develop a career path in this area. Wishing you all the best in your quest!

Genevieve recommends the following next steps:

GABRIEL’s Answer

Work hard, be curious and continue to learn, volunteer to do things outside of your area of responsibility, collaborate, build a network, work with mentors, be flexible, take calculated risks, be willing to do different jobs that will help expand your skills and be willing to move outside of your department and current location. If possible, attain a higher degree.
