Professional burnout and finding skilled people are two major problems facing the security industry, and these two issues are just making each other worse. But we can fix this! Looking to how the Greek hero Phil(ictetes) trains Hercules, we can find ways to implement his rules to improve ourselves, our industry, and others!  

In this talk, Kevin Johnson of Secure Ideas will walk attendees through some of the reasons for the skills gap and why it causes burn out. He will then discuss various methods to build apprenticeship and mentoring programs to build out our organization’s and coworkers’ knowledge. Learning from Phil will enable us all to be the hero in our world.
