I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm working on my Master of Arts in Human Development, concentrating on issues of ethics, leadership, team-building, and problem-solving. For an independent study this summer I'm researching the literature for examples of principled security leadership. My question is whether a positive, proactive leadership approach that centers on business success more productive (and perceived by executives as more productive) than pursuing regulatory compliance or giving in to fearmongering?
There is a marked lack of leadership literature specifically about the security profession, but I continue the search. Some of the recommended references include:
