Self-promotion in the security industry can be difficult. However, staying too ‘grey’ in terms of professional identity can be just as detrimental as overexposing oneself. Jared Van Driessche, an established professional in the industry, has discussed this concept of ‘grey professionals’ and advocates finding a ‘happy medium’ between secrecy and getting your name out there. Motivated by a traumatic past, his passion is to protect people, and he believes that being a ‘social chameleon’ is the way to go. This involves toning down (or ramping up) your identity, depending on the situation, to make the right impression. Listen to the full episode to hear more about the grey professional mindset and how to gain a better understanding of networking in the security industry. #Podcast #CircuitMagazinePodcast #GreyProfessional
