Why Read This Report

Entering 2007, chief information security officers (CISOs) face a siloed security monitoring, measurement, and auditing environment as well as an increased responsibility for protecting the organization's information assets. The challenge of targeted and complex threats and their increased frequency will also contribute to their angst. CISOs are looking for process and cost efficiencies, strategic advice, and specialized skill sets to help them develop and deliver effective security programs. This represents a growth opportunity for managed security service providers (MSSPs), security consultants, and security product vendors. Product marketers at these firms should pump up their outsourcing, consulting, and services offerings to meet this growing demand from CISOs.
