Security is a hot topic today. Only a few years ago, security was on the back burner of most IT departments, seen as a necessary evil with few executives ever exposed to it. With the recent spate of high-profile attacks and ensuing losses, IT security is now viewed as the difference between an organization's ability to carry out its mission and going out of business. This is why security is a topic frequently appearing on board meeting agendas and piquing the interest of C-suite executives.
While funding and awareness have increased, it is unclear if organizations are making investments in keeping up with the evolving security landscape. A lot of the newly available funding and resources have been allocated to the existing funding gaps and "perceived" deficiencies in an organization's security posture. This is why IT security is a $58B market today but organizations are not any safer than they were a few years ago. In this slideshow, Shel Sharma, marketing manager at security startup Cyphort, discusses the evolution in the security landscape and how to align new security budgets and resources with this new paradigm vs. investing in more of the same old security.
