Economic trends have tightened purse strings everywhere, leaving CISOs and security leaders to demonstrate ROI and defend their budgets. But ROI is notoriously tough to quantify when the primary return for security investment is reduction in risk. As a result, bridging the gap between security investments and actual business impact can be easier said than done, particularly if your cybersecurity spend doesn’t clearly map to organizational goals.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Identifying the right metrics for quantifying security ROI and business impact        
  • Positioning security as a business enabler, rather than a cost center
  • Aligning security investments to organizational goals
