Cybersecurity Webinar: Key Security Metrics For Budgeting & Effective Board Communication

November 16, 2020 (Dallas, TX, AND Atlanta, GA) —Zyston, a leading managed security services provider, has announced an exciting new webinar for information technology security professionals. Titled “Key Security Metrics For Budgeting & Effective Board Communication,” this new webinar will be hosted on November 17, 2020, at 12 PM Central Standard Time. The Webinar will also be recorded and distributed to all registrants that are not able attend. To register for the webinar, please visit: https://www.zyston.com/webinar-key-security-metrics-for-budgeting-effective-board-communication

Zyston’s latest security webinar, the ensuing conversation will explore the intricacies of cybersecurity metrics, costs, and budget trends, focusing on content geared toward cybersecurity professionals at mid-size to enterprise companies. As recent research studies show 70 percent of CISOs plan on asking for significant increases in their cybersecurity budgets in the coming year, the webinar comes at an important time to empower organizations and their security professionals with the tools they need for proper planning and spending as well as how to effectively communicate these plans at the board level.

Presented by Jeff Pollard, Forrester Principal Security Analyst, the webinar will provide security professionals with helpful insights and justifications for budget requests allowing for foundational board-level budget conversations alongside sales, marketing, finance, and operations considerations. The webinar’s discussion will help attendees establish security metrics, understand board communication and budgeting strategies, use board-level presentation templates, and develop strategies to track security maturity over time.

“We are excited to sponsor this upcoming webinar,” remarked Mark Coltharp, EVP Client Solutions at Zyston. “Key security metrics for budgeting and effective board communication are two important concepts for any security professional to master. Cybersecurity is a critical issue for every organization, and just how much companies spend on cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important topic. Without good metrics, security organizations cannot participate in board-level budget conversations.”

With the current COVID-19 outbreak, many companies are experiencing pandemic-induced economic turmoil, forcing them to make tough budget-cutting decisions. At this consequential time, it has never been more critical for security professionals to identify the most mission-critical security and privacy controls so they can avoid unintended consequences for their organizations and stakeholders.

Registration is limited to IT Security professionals, CIOs and CISOs.  Registration can be found here.

An exciting and informational webinar on the aforementioned topics, join Jeff Pollard on November 17, 2020, at 12 PM Central Standard Time. Registrants also get access to a free template download. The Webinar will also be recorded and distributed to all registrants that are not able attend.
