Abstract: In the world of cybersecurity, communicating complex technical information to stakeholders can be a daunting task. As highly technical practitioners, it can be challenging to convey the importance of new projects, request additional resources, or persuade stakeholders to take action. However, mastering the art of storytelling can help you convey your message with impact, clarity, and inspiration.
