Treat Cybersecurity as a Business Decision

Gartner Webinar – on demand

Cybersecurity is a business issue, not a technical one, according to 88% of boards of directors surveyed. In fact, cybersecurity is now the number-one spend item on the technology investment list. To thrive in the new environment, cybersecurity must be treated as a business decision. Organizations must stop investing in security tools and start investing in outcomes. Treating cybersecurity as a business decision requires aligning protection levels with desired business outcomes to drive business-led cybersecurity investment. CIOs and senior IT executives must be able to communicate the risks, value and cost of cybersecurity to their board of directors. In this complimentary cybersecurity webinar, Gartner experts look at the 16-cybersecurity value and outcome-driven metrics. We explore how you can use these to work with your board to design a cybersecurity investment strategy that drives business outcomes.

  • Discover how to treat cybersecurity as a business decision
  • Understand how to communicate outcome-driven metrics to your board of directors
  • Assess protection needed, willingness to spend, and how these outcomes drive key success metrics for the organization
