The State of In-Security

Presented by

Derek Brink, Vice President & Research Fellow, Aberdeen Group

About this talk

In a study of more than 160 organizations, Aberdeen found that respondents annually spend an average total of $2,150,000 in IT Security-related activities: $870,000 invested in their IT Security initiatives, plus an additional $1,280,000 in costs related to IT Security incidents that were not avoided in spite of these investments. This works out to approximately $220 per employee per year, or roughly 0.2% of annual revenue – less than many companies spend on complimentary tea and coffee. But how have some companies successfully optimized the balance between their annual investments in IT Security initiatives, and the additional financial impact of IT Security-related costs not avoided – the very essence of a risk-based approach?
