Automation, social media, cloud for business, regulatory & compliances - the list of new development in IT is long. Today, the need for speed and control is even more important to companies, who want to remain competitive in rapidly changing markets. Every little optimization can turn into a competitive advantage. The growing needs of IT security alongside poor performance management can pose a major challenge to IT professionals. At the same time, budgets for IT security are increasingly limited too but have to match the potential risks and opportunities in medium & larger enterprises.
The increased prevalence of cyberattacks underscores the need for reliable IT security measures in any corporate strategy. Companies that rely exclusively on internal resources for managing their IT systems risk mis-prioritizing business needs, as the cost of information security is not immediately apparent. Another problem is the tendency to focus too much on innovation and transformation at the expense of safeguarding information security. However, limiting information security to the sole responsibility of the IT department or a more experienced employee can be limited to only focusing on the technical aspects of IT security or reacting to cyberattacks only after they occur.
