Determine The Business Value Of An Effective Security Program — Information Security Economics 101
October 2, 2012
Why Read This Report
This report outlines Forrester's approach to helping you financially model information security. In today's seemingly never-ending cycle of new technologies, cyberthreats, and regulations, it's almost impossible for CISOs to meet all of the modern organization's security demands. In this difficult environment, senior leadership will evaluate the CISO not only on technical performance but also on how he or she manages information security as a business -- prioritizing expenditures and making tough financial calls. Forrester presents the Information Security Value Model, which you can use to calculate the financial value that information security provides to the business in terms your executive colleagues will understand. With this approach, you'll be able to make tough and effective financial decisions and demonstrate appropriate use of resources.
