Helping the C-suite Understand the Value of Security

Communicating the value of security to the C-suite is a top priority when it comes to maintaining and increasing security budgets.

Many security professionals have tried to standardize effective methods to persuade senior management and, in some cases, justify the investment in security by providing organization-specific metrics to boards, supplementing data with regional crime rates, and using industry standards and benchmarking research to valuate security costs.

Monthly and quarterly reports continue to add support to security programs until a recession hits or a new chief financial officer (CFO) is hired and requests data and metrics to justify the security department’s budget. It is a cycle that continues.
Thinking outside of the box and looking for opportunities to take corporate security beyond its traditional borders can help transform security programs from a cost center to cost neutral and beyond — yes, even a profit center. However, for this to occur, the chief security officer (CSO) will need a few items in their toolbox to make the successful move.
