The year 2020 catapulted cybersecurity from a technology problem to a business issue. Now, when organizations plan for digital transformation, leading with security is the norm. And because it’s now top of mind for business and technology leaders, cybersecurity should be a significant part of every budget — factoring in necessities such as tooling, consulting services, training, updates, new licensing, and even an insurance policy.
However, as budgeting traditionally occurs in silos, security leaders are still concerned the committed spend will not be sufficient. A recent AT&T Cybersecurity poll showed that nearly one-third (28%) of cybersecurity professionals are concerned about the prioritization of security investments.
