The Bottom Line for Security: Key factors for security success

What are the key factors for security success? What percentage of the IT budget should be spent on security? In other words, where is the security bottom line?

Security is something that organizations could spend on infinitely, trying to keep attackers at bay. But how much do they need to spend, and what do they need to do, to remain safe?

In this session, we’ll look at what conventional wisdom has been telling us, the drawbacks of current models, and what we need to think about as we move beyond traditional security perimeters and parameters.

Head of Advisory CISOs, Duo Security at Cisco
