Strategies to get more out of existing security tools
Last year, modernization initiatives for state and local agencies could be largely categorized as fast, reactive decisions to keep operations running during the pandemic. However, today CIOs and CISOs need to take a step back to consider larger questions around the security implications of those decisions.
Security advisor Wendy Nather says findings from a recent security survey can help organizations, regardless of their budget situations, identify which practices are likely to deliver the greatest security improvements.
The Security Outcomes Study surveyed nearly 5,000 IT, security and privacy leaders from 25 countries, to gain a clearer picture about which practices correlate to statistically better outcomes for organization.
