Stepwise Security, A Planned Path to Reducing Risk
A new Forrester Research report (January 17) states 66% of organizations have fallen victim to a data breach an average of 5 or more times within the past two years.  We all know there know there are more things that need to be done to help secure our services and data, but we can’t swallow the elephant in 1 bite.  The way we can address our environment is by taking multiple steps to get from the risk we have today to a much lower risk level.  We will discuss regulations and guidance from Gartner and Forrester Research to head the right direction.
