State CIOs and CISOs feel the pain of growing investment in cybersecurity especially in this new age of remote work and disrupted networks. Continually asking for more security budget funding every year from lawmakers and other elected leaders can be a challenge. As state revenues become more constrained, the most effective technology leaders will need to be able to better protect their environments using less dollars.
Tech agency leaders must guide the conversation from an outdated focus on preventing attacks to one of controlling them. Under the old “prevent” approach, states and commercial entities alike spent millions of dollars trying to fortify their networks with expensive firewalls and other complex legacy technologies. Shifting to a paradigm based on “control” means strengthening safeguards while focusing on mitigating and managing breaches when they inevitably occur. Budget-makers need to understand the difference, and why a focus on controlling threats is the key to future-proofing state networks and reducing costs.
Join us on June 23, at 10AM PT / 1PM ET, for a rapid-fire webinar on how state CIOs and CISOs can better communicate these needs to the officials who hold the purse strings.
In this 30-minute webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to talk to lawmakers about the difference between a “prevent” approach to cybersecurity and a “control” approach
- How emerging and proven security technologies are impacting the cost curve
- How a focus on isolating and reducing threats can actually improve your security posture while driving down costs
