Top Factors Making Security Groups More Effective (Dark Reading)


A sampling of 80 (ISC)2 members surveyed by the Institute for Applied Network Security (IANS) found that the group scored very well on technical excellence, but were a bit behind the broader IANS sampling of 1,000 on organizational engagement.

While technical excellence focuses on specific security products and services deployed, organizational engagement refers to the processes in place at a company for how information security aligns with the business.

Stan Dolberg, chief research officer at IANS, and IANS CEO Phil Gardner, presented the findings during a session at the (ISC)2 Security Congress in Orlando.
