A CISO’s Guide to Obtaining Budget: Know Your Audience
This podcast is the second in a six-part series examining the difficult task of securing resources for IT and security needs. In each episode, John Dickson, principal and co-founder at Denim Group, will discuss challenges and share recommendations for how chief information security officers (CISOs) should approach the task of obtaining budget.
The process of cybersecurity resource allocation frequently involves non-technical executives and board members who may not feel entirely comfortable making decisions on technical matters. At the same time, the role of the CISO differs in some fundamental ways from executive roles with P&L responsibility.
