Why a Commitment to Employee Growth Matters With Jim Routh

Why a Commitment to Employee Growth Matters With Jim Routh

"Don't hire for roles," says former MassMutual CISO Jim Routh in his conversation with Gene Fay, "hire people and create roles." Jim and Gene have a far-reaching conversation with a lot of great advice and a little laughter. From his accidental entrance into cybersecurity to his thinking on how to nurture employees and advice on how to get a foot in the door, their discussion is a great resource for those new to the field or those struggling with the cybersecurity skills gap.
Jim Routh has a long history in technology and cybersecurity as a leader and management consultant. He was formerly a cybersecurity leader for many large companies including MassMutual, CVS Health, Aetna, and JP Morgan Chase. He is also the former Board Chair for the Health Information Sharing & Analysis Center (H-ISAC) where he served for five years and former Board member for the Financial Services Information Sharing & Analysis Center (FS-ISAC). Jim currently sits on several Boards and acts as an advisor for several cybersecurity companies and venture funds. Jim brings to the boards a vast business and technology background and is considered a digital and cyber security industry expert and thought leader. Finally, Jim is an ICIT Fellow and an Adjunct Faculty member for NYU.
