Security management is a topic that rarely gets enough attention within the vast majority of enterprises. Ignoring the issue will only lead to an increased likelihood of a security breach. Every enterprise should move towards the implementation of a dedicated security team.
This note will address the concept of building a security team specifically for the mid-sized enterprise. It will focus on three core components:
- The various roles in security management.
- The order in which those roles should be filled.
- The impact outsourcing can play when assembling a security team.
Security management is essential for peak efficiency and operations. Research by Info-Tech's Indaba division indicates that the average enterprise will spend 7.3% of its IT budget on security next year. A dedicated security team will ensure that every dollar delivers peak value.
