IT Security: Balancing Risk and Reward

Presented by

Derek E. Brink, VP & Research Fellow for IT Security, Aberdeen Group

About this talk

Aberdeen's research shows that IT security and compliance budgets are increasing, yet most companies would like to decrease their investments in the management of "unrewarded” risks (i.e., protecting against security threats and vulnerabilities) and increase their investments in security that enables the “rewarded” risks of projects aimed at innovation and growth. In difficult economic times, these fundamental risk / reward decisions are increasingly important aspects of IT governance, risk management and compliance. This presentation will highlight Aberdeen's findings on best practices in risk management, cost reduction, resource allocation, and decision-making with respect to IT Security spending.
