For Security & Risk Professionals

Navigate The Future Of The Security Organization

February 14, 2012


Why Read This Report

This report outlines Forrester's solution for security and risk (S&R) executives working on building a high-performance security program and organization. This report is designed to help you understand and navigate the major business and IT trends affecting the security organization during the next five years. Today's chief information security officers (CISOs) continue to concentrate too much on tactical activities and day-to-day security operations, unable to escape the reactionary hamster wheel. Additionally, businesses and other parts of IT routinely circumvent today's security organization in order to innovate and avoid hearing the predicted "no" response. So despite all the sensational headlines about major security breaches, many CISOs find themselves marginalized by their business colleagues. In this report, Forrester details what CISOs can do to realign with their businesses and transform themselves into chief business security officers, reasserting their position with management, the board, and the company as a whole.
