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.

    What year was this created? I see salaries much higher than $120,000 for these positions (though data is not widely available)

      Thank you for your comment. Click on "More Details" below the title to see the "Last Revised" date. We have a proposed Solution Set on Security Staffing, and once enough client interest is expressed, we will commit resources to that research, which should produce more up-to-date numbers.
