Below are four principles to help you become a more effective IT security leader. While these principles won’t solve all your problems, if you practice them regularly, you can’t help but reduce risks and knock annoying security problems off your to-do lists.

Start a different information security task

Every IT security leader has a laundry list of items that need to be fixed in an organization to improve information security and lower risk. Some of these issues may instill a certain fear or anxiety in you that prevents you from taking that first step. You probably have a few scary items written on post it notes around your desk right now, so why are you waiting? It could be because you don’t like who you have to deal with to accomplish the task, or maybe it isn’t in your technology comfort zone, or….

Regardless of the reasons, the best security leaders face their fears head-on and pick up that phone, schedule that meeting or send that email NOW to initiate change rather than wait. What are you waiting for?
