We are also excited to provide data on security budgets – 73% of Security 500 respondents reported budget increases from 2019. 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.
Some of the successes, technology and strategies/philosophy changes that enterprise security executives expect to implement in the coming year are included here as well.
