We are also excited to provide data on security budgets – 71 percent of Security 500 respondents reported budget increases from 2018. Additional data includes where Security 500 Members report into within their enterprises; and the use of a security metrics program that defines productivity, value creation and cost avoidance; and whether there is a charter or policy/policies within the enterprise that clearly define(s) the role/authority of security.
A comprehensive list of successes, technology and strategies/philosophy changes that enterprise security executives expect to implement in the coming year will be also be discussed in the Security 500 webinar on November 21, 2019.
