Amen! I’ll be presenting this to the appropriate people that (currently) think security is irrelevant
Security Sounds Good, But Does It Make Me Money? (Business)
From time to time, I find myself sucked into discussions about the return on investment of security. The discussion goes something like this: from a business perspective, if security is an expense and I can choose to incur it or not, why should I? I seem to have done just fine until today. Then, a more enlightened issue comes up: if I understand the risk and I am willing to take it, that means I have the choice of spending money on prevention or remediation. Why not wait until something happens and then%u2026 we%u2019ll call you.
That just about describes the biggest misconception in business today.
