Advancing the Security Agenda- Compelling Leadership to Support Security

  • Doc Blackburn
  • Thursday, May 25th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Are you having trouble convincing the decision makers in your business to support security initiatives? Are your concerns being ignored? You are not alone! One of the biggest challenges InfoSec professionals face today is getting leadership to support their activities. There have been many recent cases of security not getting enough resources until after a breach. Unfortunately, many times, the security team is shown the door after the breach because it was considered their fault. Don't let this happen to you.

You know what to do, and how to do it. You know how important it is to your organization. The technology exists to fix your concerns. So, why won't leadership fund it? Find out how to gain support for your activities and receive the support your security initiatives need.
