7 Habits of Successful Security Project Managers


1. Expertise in Security Solutions

Having security product knowledge is crucial to generating and implementing solutions. Project managers should have in-depth technical knowledge and hands-on security experience.

2. Allocate Resources

Project management requires efficient resource management which also means having the knowledge and experience to allocate the right work to the right people. Along with a strong team, project managers should have the access and connections to a network of highly skilled security experts who are trained in their field.

3. Constant Communication

"We can take good news, we can take bad news, but we cannot take late news" is Rolland Solution's motto. A project manager's number one role is to act as the chief communicator of the project to all entities involved.

4. Mitigate Costs

Routinely monitoring financial elements has to be a habit. If a project manager does not consider budgets consistently, the project will go off the rails quickly.

5. Time Management

The best project managers will make it a habit to monitor activities and make necessary updates to timelines to ensure completion by designated deadlines.

6. Adapt to Changes

Schedules change, designs change, and budgets get affected. A successful project manager knows how to adapt to issues or changes and allocate resources accordingly.

7. Manage Project Risks

Seeing the iceberg long before it hits the ship keeps everyone involved from sinking. This means the project manager is constantly reviewing risks as part of the standard project management process.
