I believe we are at an inflection point in our industry. The transactions of value within our ecosystem of consultants, integrators, product vendors and security executives must evolve to meet the new business and risk reality.
Companies in every industry are investing heavily in corporate command centers – dedicated physical spaces for risk response such as NOCs, SOCs, etc. – with the hope of building a risk resilient organization, but many are falling short of expectations and not providing real value.
The security system in a typical small to medium business (SMB) will likely include surveillance cameras, a recorder, access control software with cards and card readers, and intrusion sensors with an alarm panel.
This suite of desktop applications enables security leaders to virtually walk through their commercial structures, and the system can create a precise replica of facilities for planning and collaborating with integrators, architects, engineers and contractors.
For the next generation of enterprise security leaders, is there a clear path forward to success? Enterprise security leaders discuss mentorships, education, certifications and the skills new CSOs and CISOs will need to succeed in their evolving roles and bring value to the business. But the problem is: with existing security leadership roles varying so widely, is the development of a uniform skill set even possible?
