Healthcare organizations hiring entry-level and senior security professionals should have certain abilities and areas of expertise in mind when studying job candidates, knowledge that differs based on the level of the job, according to an article on the Healthcare IT News website.
Cybersecurity is not computer science or computer engineering, it is a business discipline that requires people from all backgrounds and majors, according to Mansur Hasib, author of the book “Cybersecurity Leadership.”
“There are four things that determine someone’s success: knowledge, attitude, skills and habit,” Hasib said. “Attitude and habit determine success far more than anything else. Therefore, entry-level people should demonstrate they are excited about the mission of an organization and stress their attitude and habits to hiring managers.”
Entry-level candidates also should show passion for perennial learning and desire to innovate. Senior positions require more skills, more knowledge and different degrees of each.
