What you will learn:
- C-level and Board of Directors involvement in security priorities and required investments

- The highest priority security objectives for Enterprise businesses
Security risks are pervasive and becoming more difficult to prevent or minimize without the support of senior management and investments in people, processes and technologies.
The purpose of this study is to understand how companies are investing in technologies, qualified personnel and governance practices to strengthen their security posture within the limitations of their budget. Ponemon surveyed 1,825 IT management and IT security practitioners in North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA), Asia, Pacific, Japan (APJ) and Latin America (LATAM) in a total of 42 countries.
The findings of the research reveal the difficulty IT security practitioners face in achieving a stronger security posture because of inadequate budgets and the lack of C-level and boards of directors’ involvement in decisions related to IT security investments.
