How to Reduce Risk & Optimise Costs
With spending shrinking there is more pressure than ever on IT Security functions to squeeze out as much value as possible from their budgets. The focus in the boardroom is on security solutions that will decrease risk and leverage existing investments, plus deliver operational savings. A big ask?
Stephen Roostan, VP EMEA, Kenna Security and Colin Williams, Chief Technologist, Computacenter give a candid review of the last six months and discuss why some IT security projects stayed on track and others stalled at the onset of Covid 19. They share some surprising insights into which businesses invested most heavily in cloud security and what drove those decisions, and cover:
• Security & automation – what works, and what doesn’t
• Building an ROI – start small, scale rapidly
• The winners in the last 6 months
Whether you are a CISO, CIO or CFO, this webinar is for executives who are reviewing cost optimisation initiatives within IT.
