@Slalom mostly of my readings are internal and external white paper or admin/implementation guides (😖). Data and Goliath has good reviews. I bought it but haven't started reading.

Mckinseys cyber security practice out out a book called beyond cyber security last year. Read the book and then pass your own judgement

@Slalom What's wrong with the book? I actually have read that book. It was a gift from client CISO. It was written in 2014 so it must be outdated in eyes of 2017. Besides that, it's well written for its purpose; the audience is not really savvy cyber expert but more for the boards.

Like, our Tech Industry practices?

it's a much more level playing field. whether it stays that was is tbd

@ey1....i actually think the book is great...especially chapter 3 or 4 about aligning security w the value chain. I genuinely wanted op to read the book and make their on call. If they think the book sucks...the mckinsey (and then BB is probably not for them). If they liked the book then mbb could be for them

At ey1...any other books you like. Since you read beyond cyber security we probably have similar interests

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Fellow 🐠 in MBB - there is a belief in a few consultants that being a part of MBB is the main goal at any cost. Being on the inside and having seen, through this application or your networks, what other firms do, do you think this belief is healthy? Would you consider your work to be just as enjoyable at another firm? If not, where do you think other firms fall shy of the MBB.
