Re: Mixed bag
Thanks for sharing that, @robert. How does your existing staff stay on top of security technologies and trends? Is it something individuals undertake on their own, or does your company offer incentives.

My company is slightly understaffed and we do not have budget to add more people. However, the people we have are extremely knowledgable and qualified.  The major problem we run into is budget to purchase new security technologies and training on the newest technology and threats.
