What you have written is entirely true and spot on...but you're preaching to the choir.  The audience of "Dark Reading" already knows this implicitly.  This subject matter needs to be published in other periodicals where "business leadership" can possibly learn something from it.

And the C-Suite generally has zero appreciation of IT in general and security in specific.  Belief that all IT can be re-routed to Bangalore or H1-B visa types just based on salary and benefit cost is their concern.  Security concerns far less so and that is evidenced by reaction to a security breach.  (Like Equifax - shut up, say nothing, blame 1 guy and move on).  Security professionals are thus not respected in general and are always touchy.
