They say it “takes a village” to help raise a child… well, it also takes a village to help raise an infosec professional. With so many technologies, techniques, and tools and the need for soft-skills and the ability to navigate different types of relationships, we all need help. That’s where a formal mentor can be your guide into the unknown.
We ALL can benefit from being mentored and being a mentor.
In this live Black Hills Information Security (BHIS) webcast, we’ll discuss:
– How to know if you need a mentor
– How to find a mentor
– How to be a mentor
– How to be a mentee
– How to ask someone to be a mentor
– Multiple mentors
– Difference between mentors, friends, tutors, career counselors, etc.
– What to discuss during a mentoring session
– How to make the best use of everyone’s time
– When to end a mentoring relationship
