We need to focus more on organizational innovations in security. The complexity of companies increases. Management decisions cannot be based on a singular operational conclusion. Networked systems, cybercrime, social media make it difficult to decide what’s important and challenging to develop an effective security strategy. At the same time security (professionals) seem to be held hostage by the adagio of ever increasing security measures. But more does not always mean better security. And annually increasing (security) budgets are history anyway! Embedding intelligence in corporate security functions will achieve a better security balance. This presentation will provide you practical, innovative tools.
