It is not the job that defines you;
           you define you!
“The difference in our success or
failure is not chance, but choice.

Because when adversity strikes, it’s
not what happens that will
determine our destiny;
It’s how we react to what happens.”

                               Finish Strong
           Where Do We Start?

• The changing landscape of the security
  profession
• Preparing now for the future
• 360° Security Leader
  – Outward Focus
  – Inward Focus
• Staying Positive!
                      The Name of the Game
                           is Change
• The world is changing on a scale and pace that is
  unprecedented
• The world of security is changing too
• Our business, protecting vital national security assets, is getting
  more complicated and challenging every day

            “The security profession requires 360° thinkers,
    people able to adapt to succeed in the new environment
                           we live in now and in the future.”
                                                  William R. Kotapish
                                          Former Security Director, CIA
          The Changing Landscape
 Nothing is more important to National Security than the
   making and the conduct of good security policies and
    timely, accurate, objective and relevant intelligence.

• Senate Select Intelligence Committee Testimony – DNI
  James Clapper, January 2012
   • Espionage continues; it’s not just terrorism
   • Cyber enabled attacks; migration from unclassified to
     classified systems
   • Trusted insider threat
   • Critical infrastructure protection; it’s not just classified we
     care about
       The Changing Landscape
            – 2012 Issues

• Globalized integration
• World-wide connectivity of IT systems
• Information sharing – federal, state, local, private
  partners
• Miniaturization of everything!
• Supply chain security
“Intelligence value today arises from how fast we
can gather, understand and move information to
                      create

  DECISION ADVANTAGE

   for our civilian and military leaders - - -
  not by how much of it is locked in a safe.”
                   Dr. Joel F. Brenner
      Former National Counterintelligence Executive
Why was this a Security
      Success?

            Security Success 1:
                We didn’t know until they wanted us
                to know.

            Security Success 2:
                Our war fighters returned safely.

            Security Success 3:
                A national security objective was met.
 Where Does Security Fit In?


EVERYWHERE!!
    Therefore We Need A 360°
          Perspective…
What are the challenges
      we face in
the security profession?




                           How is your job different
                           today vs. ten years ago?
          Challenges We Face

• Selling security to the non-security
  professional
• Ability to forecast security needs
• Overcome being typecast
• Procurement of resources to deliver the
  mission
• Maintaining a counter-intelligence focus in a
  counter-terrorism environment
360° Security Leaders
turn challenges into
   opportunities…

                  Security is a paradox.
                 The more it succeeds,
         the less important it appears.
                    The 360° Security
                      Perspective
• Mission driven – with a balanced perspective
   – Sees every security environment as unique
   – Enables operations – an acceptable level of risk at an
     acceptable cost
• Embraces intuitive & situational awareness
• Delivers Value

  “No one cares what you did for them yesterday so every
          day is another day to demonstrate value to the
                                          organization.”
                                                        Rob Rogalski
                              Corporate Director of Security & Safety
                                                  RAND Corporation
              Preparing Now for the
                     Future
Convergence
• We’re all implementing different aspects of security in
  an era of overlapping interfaces

• Leverage of common infrastructures to address
  several areas of risk at once
   – Streamline repeatable processes, employ technology
   – Information & Physical Security
   – Counterintelligence & Cyber Security

• We need security professionals who are…
   – Multi-disciplinary in expertise
   – Business & program generalists with a broad
     understanding of all aspects of protection
               Preparing Now for the
                      Future
Adaptability
• In the face of difficult economic times, prioritize based
  on risk – you cannot protect everything

• Making the business case – Security as a “shared
  cost” across the organization; phased expenditures

• Have the right people – when budgets are cut, so are
  staff; talent management

• Outsource wisely – cutting costs; bring in a proven
  skill set
“Leaders who navigate do more than control the
 direction in which they and their people travel.

 They see the whole trip before they leave the
dock – seeing farther, seeing more and seeing it
             before others see it.”

                                           John Maxwell
                        Leadership Promises for Every Day
          360° Security Leader
            Outward Focus
• Global perspective
• Mission driven
• Creative thinking – We need both pragmatics
  and visionaries
• Business acumen – translate whatever it takes
  to deliver security into their language
• Politically astute – credible & fair
• Consensus Builder
None of us is as smart as all of us.
                    Don’t React - LEAD


• Gain a seat at the management table
     • Be seen as a resource beyond security requirements
     • Build alliances
• Do not play the blame game with management
  - you are them!
     • Move from blame to ownership
     • Who owns the problem? We all do!
• Coach & mentor program personnel
     • Spread security responsibility throughout the
       organization
Gain a seat at the table.
              Take Ownership




Don’t blame management –
  you are one of them!
                  “Management wants to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ what you
                     bring to the organization. Be approachable;
                             develop trust by being trustworthy.”
