When facing a wide range of threats and finite resources with which to combat them, you must find innovative ways of finding the right talent, hiring them, training them, and creating a team that is as effective as it is inventive.

Addressing this challenge goes far beyond writing a good job description and sourcing candidates. This talk will begin by examining the disparity between available talent and a growing demand for experienced personnel, even for relatively junior positions. We'll discuss ways to create not only an effective technical environment, but one that is conducive to positive morale and professional growth for people of all skill levels and backgrounds. Well walk through some real world challenges, roles and skill types, and unique approaches to recruiting and skill evaluation. Finally, I'll close with some personal anecdotes and "dos and don'ts" based on my experience building and running security operations teams.
