Security budgets have recently come under intense scrutiny and often are being cut or left the same as previous years even in a climate where security threats and attacks are on the rise. In these conditions where do you invest your available budget? Why isn’t the technology you have invested previously solving your security problems? How do you use the technologies and capabilities that you already have more effectively? How do you convince your management and leadership that security is still relevant and important?
