Nine Practices of the Successful Security Leader

The Security Executive Council has posted a paper on its web site entitled "The Nine Practices of the Successful Security Leader".  Here is an excerpt of the Executive Summary:

"In many professional fields—legal, technology, and finance, for instance—one can expect to find certain commonalities among the practitioners. These professionals share certain certifications or degrees, or they’ve progressed through a series of common steps or training regimens to reach their current position, where they share a fairly standard reporting level. The security profession does not fit into such a mold. We at the Security Executive Council have researched and studied the security community at a depth no other organization has, and the diversity of experience, responsibility, authority and background we’ve found is stunning."
