Building an Effective Security Strategy: It's More Than A List Of Tech
Martin Fisher

In this discussion we will discuss the process of developing a workable and effective security strategy for an enterprise. Covering steps from Evaluation to Context to Mission to Budget we will discuss what a security strategy is, what a security strategy isn't, and why much of what you think you know about creating a strategy likely isn't correct. This talk can help leaders rethink how they approach strategy and can help individual contributors realize why sometimes their leader does things that seem odd.
