Presentation: Hacking Your Career 

Speaker: Keith Turpin CISSP, CSSLP, CRISC and NSA Certified Infosec Assessor

Abstract: This talk will help you take charge of your future and ring success out of every opportunity. Everyone has the potential to achieve great things, but they don’t always know how. It is time to get some answers. I am going to share all my lessons learned on the way to becoming a CISO of a billion-dollar international company. Whether you are looking to make more money in your current role or to climb the corporate ladder, I will show you how to do it and more importantly, how to avoid the pitfalls along the way. In this candid conversation, I will discuss the characteristics of high performers, the secrets of hacking the salary planning process and how to dodge the curse of the Peter Principle. I will also give you important perspectives on changing jobs from effective resume strategies to the three questions you need to ask in an interview and finally how to negotiate any job offer. Think of this as the cheat sheet to kicking your career into high gear.
