Become a Guest or Partner Blogger
The objective for this Blog is to bring together a virtual community of like-minded security practitioners to discuss, debate and, share cyber security observations and practical best-practices from the trenches – towards improving infrastructure security to our mutual benefit.
NigeSecurityGuy blog is inviting articles and topics from like-minded security contributors who are either just getting started and bring a fresh new perspective up to veteran experts. If you either want to become a guest contributor and/or partner in the blog, do not want to operate your own blog or, just have a one-off topic, idea or experience that you want to share. As Margaret Mead once said:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Sharing and Reciprocity
Collaboration and sharing is a sophisticated skill that asks people who work together to look beyond personal interests towards outcomes benefiting the whole. Collaboration and sharing is a great way to address complex challenges, since it has the potential to tap communal creativity and unleash true innovation and earn genuine buy-in.
- Awareness – We become part of a working entity with a shared purpose
- Motivation – We drive to gain consensus in problem solving or development
- Participation – We participate in collaboration and we expect others to participate
- Mediation – We negotiate and we collaborate together and find a middle point
- Reciprocity – We share and we expect sharing in return through reciprocity
- Reflection – We think and we consider alternatives
- Engagement – We proactively engage rather than wait and see
Together we can build a safe and more secure environment. A car with good brakes and integrated systems can drive a lot faster, likewise a business with good security and integrated systems can develop with agility.
“Training often gives people solutions to problems already solved. Collaboration addresses challenges no one has overcome before.”
― Marcia Conner
