Spends and Trends: Results of the SANS 2020 Cybersecurity Spending Survey

  • Webcast Aired Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST (2020-01-29 18:00:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Barbara Filkins, John Pescatore

CISOs and security operations managers need information on the areas of security in which their peers plan to increase or decrease their investment. Boards of directors often lack essential benchmarking data when CISOs present security status and strategic plans to them. This survey explores what organizational leaders are emphasizing as they budget for and procure security tools and services to support their businesses amid evolving technologies and threats.

Webcast attendees will learn:

  • What strategies that organizations (and individuals) can use to justify security spending
  • How spending has changed with the cloud-based adoption of cybersecurity tools and services
  • How the use of open source impacts security budgets
  • How organizations are purchasing tools and services to cover their IoT/operational technology (OT) devices
  • What areas of overhyped security technologies are included in spending plans
  • What low-visibility areas have been omitted from spending plans
