This IDC PlanScape focuses on how to manage a security program effectively. It includes:

  • How to assess the current security state and identify gaps (The current security state assessment defines "where the security program is now.")
  • How to develop and implement a successful security road map (The road map defines "where the security program is going.")
  • How to understand stakeholder risk tolerance to target and evolve the security program successfully (An effective security program requires support and cooperation from all parts of the business. It must reflect the stakeholder's tolerance to risk and differing tolerances across the risk environment.)

"A well-understood current security state assessment and defined road map are essential to building a robust security program that serves the business today and in years to come," says Nick Kirtley, adjunct research advisor, IT Executive Programs (IEP) at IDC. "Having this defined allows the security team to validate why ongoing investment is needed."
