November 05, 2019The Hacker News
The end of the year is coming, and it's time for security decision-makers to make plans for 2020 and get management approval. Typically, this entails making a solid case regarding why current resources, while yielding significant value, need to be reallocated and enhanced. The Definitive2020 Security Plan PPT Template is built to simplify this task, providing security decision-makers with an off-the-shelf tool to clearly and easily present their plans and insights to management. While many security decision-makers have the tools and expertise to build their case technologically, effectively communicating their conclusions to the organization's management is a different challenge.

Security incidents occur. It's not a matter of 'if' but of 'when.' There are security products and procedures that were implemented to optimize the IR process, so from the 'security-professional' angle, things are taken care of.

In today's business environment, data is what matters most. It matters to organizations that monetize it into operational insights and optimisations, and it matters the threat actors that relentlessly seek to achieve similar monetisation by compromising it. In the very common scenario in which organisation A provides services to organization B, it's imperative for the latter to be absolutely sure that the former handles its data in the most secure way. While there's no one-size-fits-all in cybersecurity, there are various frameworks that provide robust guidelines for organizations to see if the security controls in place indeed address their needs.
