Security management is an important topic that does not get enough attention within the vast majority of all enterprises. This problem is only heightened in a small enterprise where operational budgets are intensely tight and staff limited. Ignoring the issue only leads to an increased likelihood of a security breach. Every enterprise must start moving towards the implementation of a dedicated security team.
This note will address the concept of building a security team specifically for the small enterprise. It will focus on three core components:
- The various roles in security management.
- The order in which the roles should be filled.
- The impact outsourcing can play when assembling a security team.
Security management is essential for peak efficiency and operations. The average enterprise will spend 7.3% of its IT budget on security next year. A dedicated security team will ensure that every dollar of that amount delivers peak value.
