When faced with the decision to share or hold knowledge about security, successful professionals learn to teach what they know.
"When you share what you know, sometimes the other person knows a different part. Or they actually know more. With an open mind, it's a fantastic opportunity to learn. Blending our knowledge and experience leads to more understanding and better solutions.
The practice of sharing (and learning) tends to reinforce itself, too. People are smart. Security, especially now, is top of mind for a lot of people. Sharing our knowledge with them creates the environment for them to share what they know with us.
It's broader than teaching security courses. This same strategy works with colleagues and clients. It works in any organization, and in most situations.
The more we share, the more we learn. It surfaces new challenges, but also provides new and different solutions."
