March Virtual Chapter Event - "Shields up: Cybersecurity Project Management”

Ways of Working

A growing project management specialization is in cybersecurity which faces a shortage of competent project managers. Shields Up: Cybersecurity Project Management was released in August 2022.

Learning objectives

  • Greg Skulmoski will show how to align project management with critical standards (e.g., ITIL, ISO 27001, ISO 31000, ISO 9001 and NIST Cybersecurity Framework) required to deliver cybersecurity projects on time and on budget.
  • He will also share insights from the book such as a risk management technique not in the PMBOK® Guide that you can use on your projects tomorrow!

Shields Up is receiving critical acclaim including “Must Read” (Jason Roos, Chief Information Officer), “Perfect Alignment” (Irene Corpuz, Lead Implementer and Auditor), and “Best I Have Seen in My Career” (Timothy Kloppenborg, Distinguished Professor Emeritus). Join us to discuss cybersecurity project management with one of the “authors” of the second edition of the PMBOK® Guide (2000).

Please join Greg Skulmoski, as he presents “Shields up: Cybersecurity Project Management”


Greg Skulmoski is an award-winning project manager having led critical infrastructure projects in Australia, Middle East, and Canada. Greg’s innovative use of project management tools and processes won the CISO 2017 Middle East Security Award (for risk management in projects). Later, Greg was one of the project managers for the Smartphone-Connected Pacemaker Devices program listed in Cleveland Clinic’s Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2021. Dr. Skulmoski currently teaches risk management and project innovation management at Bond University in Australia.

Greg’s critically acclaimed book – Shields Up: Cybersecurity Project Management is widely available in book and Kindle formats. Greg is writing Cybersecurity Readiness: A Project Management Approach to Training that provides a lean approach to cybersecurity general awareness and role-based training.
