Optimize Product Utilization
Before spending money on new or more security tools make sure you are getting the most out of what you already have, says Roselle Safran, president of cybersecurity consultancy Rosint Labs. Often, businesses that buy new tools end up not utilizing them fully or exploring all the ways the technology can be used, says Safran, a former manager of cybersecurity ops at the Executive Office of the President during the Obama era.
Products keep getting enhanced all the time and a tool that you purchased a year or two ago for a specific purpose may now have the ability to do other things. So before shopping for new products make sure you are harnessing all the capabilities of what you already have. "Often, there are products that can cover several different tasks," she says. "Using all the capabilities that your products have is less expensive," than splurging on more tools. Optimizing product use can be a great money saver, she says.
