The Security Executive Council has developed a one-day leadership forum, The Next Generation Security Leader™ program (NGSL). A number of the industry’s “most influential leaders in security" collaborated with thought leaders and security executives to create this curriculum that guides the next generation of security leaders. This high-value development opportunity has drawn the participation and endorsements of top security leaders and their teams from companies such as Boeing, Capital One, Cummins, Dell, Delta Airlines, Kohler, Massachusetts General Hospital, Microsoft, and Raytheon. NGSL arms current and emerging leaders with the needed tools for professional development and continuous organizational improvement.
Last year at the Great Conversation NGSL I – Board Level Risk and Unified Protection Oversight was offered. It covered 6 modules including fundamental Board-Level Risks and Unified Protection Oversight™ to protect people, assets and critical processes and was supported by the highly acclaimed Darla Moore School of Business.
NGSL II - On the Path to Operational Excellence makes its debut at The Great Conversation 2014 in Seattle, WA. NGSL I is not a prerequisite for NGSL II. NGSL II addresses rising regulatory and organizational performance needs in a continuing fluid global risk environment. NGSL II is supported by research and findings from the Council's Security Leadership Research Institute and Kennesaw State University’s Coles College of Business, designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance as recognized by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
Both the NGSL I and II are available in audio taped, self-review formats and can be purchased here.
