So here’s my thing; It isn’t about the fact she was a music major and had two degrees in that. What it is really all about is the fact that she had no discernible security experience in the time she was working in the position or before to make her qualified to handle the job. THIS IS THE ISSUE PEOPLE! It is not about that she had a degree in nothing to do with security. So please stop all the 140 character bullshit and get it through your thick heads that even if you have a degree in IT this does not make you qualified necessarily to handle a job in information security ok?

Now that the CSO’s and CISO’s linkedin pages are redacted you can’t see much of anything but before they took them down I looked and neither had the requisite experience that would make me consider them for a position as an executive in charge of insuring that the security of the company and more importantly, the security of the clients data was in capable hands. Look. let’s face it you can say that the exec is just there as an advocate or to manage Trust me though, if they have no experience in the arena either they listen to their guys in the field and implicitly trust them and advocate or they just are compliance monkeys of the worst order.

I have lived it and I have seen it throughout my career in security. So please stop all the fuckery about “I have a degree in animal science and woe is me I am unfit for security!”

BULLSHIT

If you have a degree or not, you have to have put in the hours of study and actually doing the things! If you haven’t then you are out of your depth and bad things will happen.

Just look at Equifax.
