The IT Security Business Case: Sustainable Funding to Manage the Risks
This brief takes a holistic approach to constructing the case for enterprise IT security investment by outlining for the state CIOs the following steps:

  • Making the case for IT security through demonstrating the risks (bolstered by the IT risk assessment results), the benefits of security, and how security aligns with the state’s business needs.
