Why Read This Report

Security leaders will find no escape from the pressures that shape their budgets this year. Data breaches, stiff competition for talent, and decentralized technology spending are still major challenges. This report compares the budgets of security decision makers at firms spending up to 10%, 11% to 20%, and 21% to 30% of their overall tech budget on information security technologies. Security leaders can use these budget ranges as a starting point, then compare their product, service, staffing, and other allocations with those of similar firms.
