Tripwire has released results from an extensive study focused on the state of risk-based security management with the Ponemon Institute.
The study examined the disconnect between an organizations commitments to risk-based security management and its ability to develop the collaboration, communication styles and culture necessary for effective security programs across the organization.
The study respondents included 749 U.S. and 571 U.K. professionals in the following areas: IT security, IT operations, IT risk management, business operations, compliance/internal audit and enterprise risk management.
“Risk-based security is an extremely complex problem where predictability and outcomes are constantly changing,” said Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute.
“This means that even the most secure and sophisticated organizations experience risk because there are too many variables in play. Effective communication and collaboration across the organization are crucial in mitigating this risk.”
