Dark Reading Radio: How To Get The Most Out Of Your Security Budget

Join us on Wednesday, May 18 at 1pmEDT/10am PDT, for a discussion with security executives on how to prioritize and manage your IT security budget.

Security budgets may be inching upward in many organizations, but that doesn’t mean IT security is actually getting the funding it truly needs, nor that security managers actually have the requisite talent and staff.

Take the recent Ponemon Institute 2015 Global Study on IT Security Spending & Investments, which found that nearly 60% of organizations are either unsure or don’t think that their organization has the resources to even meet compliance requirements. The 2015 InformationWeek Strategic Security Survey shows that nearly half of organizations with 100 or more employees say their security budgets were expected to increase in 2015. But at the same time, only 27% of them say they have sufficient IT security staff to properly protect their infrastructure and information.

In the next episode of Dark Reading Radio, we’ll explore how to most effectively and efficiently allocate security spending, tapping compliance, open source, cloud, and other strategies to get the biggest bang for your buck. And once you’ve prioritized your spending -- including staffing -- plans, how do you pitch it to upper management for the win?

Join us on Dark Reading Radio on Wednesday, May 18 at 1pmEDT/10amEDT, where we’ll talk to enterprise security executives who face these issues from the trenches every day: Patrick Heim, head of trust & security for DropBox and the former CISO at Kaiser Permanente, and Jonathan Trull, VP and CISO of Optiv, and former CISO of the State of Colorado, who will share their experience and insight on making the most of a security budget.
