In industries where constant change is the norm these days, such as the healthcare industry, it was noted that while business is faced with constant change in business strategies and reimbursement strategies, the security changes are competing with the same cultural changes. Leading change and “making it stick” in these environments was viewed as a constant battle. ” This is in stark contrast to the “very important” rating on the “softer skills” such as self confidence (67 percent), tenacity (55 percent), perseverance (58 percent), oral communication skills (76 percent), written communication skills (74 percent), influencing (70 percent), business acumen (39 percent), teamwork (67 percent), collaboration (62 percent), and leading change (46 percent).
Business acumen is also not included in the training of most security programs on information security and is highly dependent upon the vertical industry to which the security professional is engaged. Another noted that security is viewed as a technology skill, and there is a definite need to understand the business, culture, direction, and goals before recommending security solutions.

Another noted that influencing is difficult because the audience (business areas) are seldom receptive to the message, because “nothing bad has happened here,” at least that they are aware of, and don’t see the information security issues which could negatively affect the company. Influencing individuals to view information security as a business investment instead of a business punishment was seen as a challenge. Influencing without direct authority over individual departments and end users that were necessary to implement secure practices was viewed as another challenge.
