Speech Topic & Synopses
Maturing the Security Organization Break-Out

Maturing The Security Organization Traditional security measurements are reactive, tactical, and operations-focused at best; at worst, they give executives a false sense of security. As a result, the focus is on plugging the hole not improving the process. As the security discipline matures, many CISOs are moving away from compliance and audit-based check-box approaches to more holistic risk and maturity based security programs. In this session, Forrester will highlight its security maturity model and provide participants with:

– An overview of the current state of information security maturity

– Actionable and practical advice to implement the security maturity

– Recommendations for progressing to higher maturity levels
