If you are a CSO or head of security, you will inevitably face the day when a senior business executive will ask you for a detailed analysis of your strategy including the level of service you provide and how it will scale over time.

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.
