I am often shocked when I come across companies whose most valuable assets are the collective intelligence of their employees; yet, many companies that rely on information security professionals do not offer tuition reimbursement. You know, that’s a head-scratcher to me. I was attending a conference recently where one of the speakers made an eloquent point pertaining to this divergence; and credit goes to the person who explained the concept to him:
Prevailing Opinion: “What if we train them, they get certified and they leave?”
Opposing View Point: “Well, what if we don’t train them, and they stay?”
What side of that coin are YOU on when it comes to those points of views?
