More cybersecurity dollars
It would be a scary thought to know that your organisation is actually not investing enough in cybersecurity dollars. With the recent increase in data breaches, organisations ought to step up their game in order to prevent themselves and their employees from falling into hot soup. It could cost them even more should they fall in an unwanted cyberattack situation and it might just be too late.

Proof of your money's worth
I think you will only know if you've invested your cyber security money properly when you don't have any incidents to speak of. If all of your data units are safe in storage in your facility and you don't see hackers trying to bring your systems down all the time, I reckon that that's a pretty good sign that you're doing a good job with the security you've set up...

Re: Proof of your money's worth
I think that's the goal right? No incidents ever. The problem is there's a fallacy that the if we only invested enough money and buy all the things then we can have no incidents. We don't live in a world we we are able to eliminate car accident deaths, but we pretend we can stop all incidents. Instead, we have to operate in an imperfect world with less than we'd like. Operating in that world requires a methodical approach to make sure we spread the resources we do have around the most efficient way.
