Key security program and budget data for CISOs
Benchmarking against similar organizations provides IT leaders with powerful tools to analyze departmental performance and gain executive management support.
Since no universal standards for security programs exist, benchmarking can help CISOs and other senior security leaders measure their programs’ effectiveness and communicate to upper management how the company’s security posture and programs compare against similar organizations.
As a crowdsourced benchmark survey commissioned by Wisegate members—who are senior-level IT security practitioners—the publication of the Wisegate 2013 IT Security Benchmark Summary Report aims to provide useful guidance and a clear benchmark for IT security.
The survey was developed by a group of veteran CISOs and facilitated by Wisegate to uncover the relevant and comprehensive benchmark data security leaders need to improve the effectiveness of security programs, demonstrate business value and gain executive support for new programs or underfunded initiatives.
