Security budgets are unlike other department budgets. Increases or decreases in the budget can drastically affect the organizational risk level. Info-Tech’s methodology moves you away from traditional budgeting into a risk-based budget that is designed to be as dynamic as your business growth model.


Your Challenge

  • Year after year, CISOs need to develop a comprehensive security budget that is able to mitigate against threats.
  • This budget will have to be defended with many other stakeholders to ensure that there is proper funding.
  • Security budgets are unlike other departmental budgets. Increases or decreases in the budget can drastically affect the organizational risk level.
  • CISOs struggle with the ability to assess the effectiveness of their security controls and where to allocate money.

Our Solution

  • Info-Tech’s methodology moves you away from the traditional budgeting approach and builds a budget that is designed to be as dynamic as the business growth model.
  • Collect the requirements that your organization needs and build different budget options to describe how increases/decreases can affect the risk level.
  • Discuss the different budgets with the business to determine what level of funding is needed for the desired level of security.
  • Gain approval of your budget early, by performing “pre-shopping” and presenting the budget early to individual stakeholders prior to the final budget approval process.
