The end of the year is coming and it’s time for security decision makers to make plans for 2020 and get management approval. Typically, this entails making a solid case regarding why current resources, while yielding significant value, need to be reallocated and enhanced. The 2020 Security Plan PPT Template is built to simplify this task, providing security decision makers with an off-the-shelf tool to clearly and easily present their plans and insights to management.
While many security decision makers have the tools and expertise to build their case technologically, effectively communicating their conclusions to the organization’s management is a different challenge. Management doesn’t think in terms of malware, identity compromise or zero-day exploits, but in terms of monetary loss and gain:
- Would investment A in a security product reduce the likelihood of cyberattack derived downtime?
- Would outsourcing a certain security functionality to a service provider optimize the productivity of the in-house team?
If you’re the one accountable for security in your organization, you must be able to provide simple answers to these questions.
A significant part of this relates to the pros and cons of the current security posture. What was achieved in the passing year didn’t happen by chance but was the result of executing a well-defined strategy. Communicating this strategy and its results are paramount to justifying resource reallocation.
The 2020 Security Plan PPT Template enables security pros – CISOs, CIOs, security directors and others – to easily distill their security knowledge and present the insights and conclusions that speak the management language.
The template was built based on feedback from both security stakeholders and management personnel, encompassing the key aspects of presenting an annual plan. Instead of spending valuable time on building their case from scratch, security decision makers can start from a given infrastructure and focus on filling it in based on their specific needs.
