New Book Helps Public-Sector Security Pros Transition to Private Business
January 15, 2009, Washington, DC—The Security Executive Council (SEC) is proud to announce the availability of a new book by SEC faculty member J. David Quilter, From One Winning Career to the Next: Transitioning Public Sector Leadership and Security Expertise to the Business Bottom Line. The book focuses on security practitioners transitioning from government to private industry positions, but its contents will be helpful to security practitioners moving into new sectors or industries, and for those who simply want to improve their contribution to the business.
The federal government’s relatively low minimum retirement age is an invitation to many public-sector security professionals to move into the corporate world after leaving government service. These professionals, and others who change careers before retirement age, often find themselves in unfamiliar territory once they make the jump because they aren’t accustomed to tailoring security to the financial and operational needs of a business.
From One Winning Career to the Next is designed to help these security practitioners become business-focused security leaders. Author J. David Quilter shares his own experience transitioning from a long career at the Drug Enforcement Administration into the private world, where he enjoyed great success as a senior security executive at four Fortune 500 corporations. The lessons he learned can serve as guides to others traveling a similar path, to help them identify and cultivate the leadership skills they will need to have a positive impact on any business or organization.
This book is ideal for those who:
