Here is Your Cybersecurity Budget. Spend It Wisely (ITSP Magazine)


I know, in reading the headline it seems obvious doesn’t it? But that’s just it. Sometimes the obvious isn’t so obvious. It seems that many businesses believe they are protected because they have a security person, IT supports that person, they have firewalls, they get an annual penetration test, and they “fix” things the test finds. Sounds about right?
