The CSPF is busily launching programs and events, including a Cybersecurity for Executives lecture series designed to raise security awareness. The group is also now working with its association members to develop a framework for dialog across security-related fields, including business continuity, emergency management, risk management, critical infrastructure protection, defense and intelligence.
Thanks to its fast start, the CSPF is now getting a lot of attention from security professionals in other countries who are interested in following suit. "I'm seeing other countries following our example or adopting a variation of what we're doing," says Lecky. Australia, for example, is working on creating a security alliance.
Work on the CSPF might seem burdensome for someone, even without the additional weight of another full-time position and without the prospect of greater fortune. "I don't like being bored," says Lecky. "The reward right now is a job well done. I'm furiously stubborn. If there's something I feel needs to be done, I will just go and do it."
