Adam Shostack: Achieving Success in Cyber Consulting

As Adam Shostack knows, the field of information security consulting is very crowded and highly competitive. To achieve any level of success in the industry, one must not only possess a strong understanding of the security issues organizations face on a daily, monthly and yearly basis; they must also possess the ability to remain flexible when it comes to meeting the numerous different security needs unique organizations and industries face, as well as to have the willingness to stay current on the ever-changing technologies and threats that are forever challenging the industry.

The Managing Consultant of Shostack & Associates, Adam Shostack understands that for cybersecurity consultants of any specialty to remain competitive and successful, they must:

  • Always be learning. Keeping a finger on the pulse of the industry and maintaining the desire to learn where it is and where its head is essential to anticipating and managing client’s current and future needs
  • Challenge themselves regularly. Consultants are responsible for solving problems. In the world of cybersecurity, those problems are changing and evolving constantly. To stay on top and ahead of these changes, it’s important to always seek out problems you’ve never dealt with or resolved before, as such situations can help to keep you sharp and prepared for anything that comes your way.
