Cyber Threat Management Staff was asked...April 14, 2016

One interesting question they asked was about my take on cyber security and ways to handle it.

1 Answers

I responded by talking about a 3 step approach to information and cyber security. 1. A tested and comprehensive technology solution 2. Business context and alignment of the technology solution and 3. The support from the human users of the system. I talked about how the human vulnerability is the biggest threat to security and a system is only as secure as the human end point using it. Less

The questions were predominantly the "who are you," and the, "problem solving" type questions. They were all fairly informal, or should I say, relaxed interviews. The questions I was asked are no longer relevant, as I know the interview has been reviewed.

Its hard to specify! But I got a very tough question (I guess) regarding malware.

1 Answers

The answer was, "I am sorry, I don't know about it" And yes... the interviewer was exactly looking for the answer!! The interviewer's goal was to find out that how comfortable I am to say a 'polite no' to a hard question. Coz, they don't expect someone to know every answer. But it must need to be a justified 'tough question'! However, I would say, it really depends on the person who is interviewing you. Less
