Wisegate and Secure360 Present Study on What (Really) Matters to Senior IT Professionals

Co-sponsors Wisegate and Secure360 will unveil results of a recent study to the attendees of the Secure360 Conference on what truly matters to CISOs in terms of job satisfaction and aspiration. Wisegate CEO Sara Gates will release the findings on Wed., May 14th at 8:00 a.m. prior to the conference keynote. For Secure360 attendees only, results of this study paint a revealing picture for experienced IT practitioners who want to find the most job satisfaction and fulfillment in their careers, and will help companies and managers attract and retain top IT talent within the current IT talent shortage.

The report, titled “Hello, I Must Be Going,” was created in conjunction with security industry experts and was co-authored by Wisegate members, Nikk Gilbert, CISO & VP of Information Technology, Corporate Security & Safety, CUNA Mutual Group, and Paul Harjung, CISO, W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. Here’s what Secure360 attendees can expect to learn:

  • What truly matters most to IT professionals is not money.
  • The types of environments and companies where IT pros report the greatest happiness.
  • The percentage of IT professionals seeking a job change in the next year.
  • Critical “soft skills” gaps between what they know is important to excel at and what they are currently good at.
