Where CISOs are Investing and Why

Ensuring that your security budget is well managed and is going towards the right channels to protect and maintain the integrity of your company’s data is a key part of a CISO’s job. But knowing how and where to spend your budget can be a daunting task with today’s ever-changing security and compliance landscape. Because of these swift changes and growing cybersecurity threats, CISOs have been spending more on security than ever before.

“The average budget increase from 2022 to 2023 is 11%, with a further average increase of 19% forecast for the 2023 to 2024 budget cycle” according to a survey from Osterman Research of CISO and CIO respondents at 284 organizations in the United States with more than 1,000 employees.

CISOs are reporting that their top priority is cloud security, strategy and architecture[1].

Due to the increase in cyber crime and security threats year over year, CISOs are investing resources in the following areas:

  • Automation/AI
  • Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services
  • Shifting from legacy cybersecurity platforms to cloud-native platforms

These key areas of investment are helping firms stay on top of their individual compliance requirements and cybersecurity needs. Additionally, these shifts will save cybersecurity teams time, money, and talent, which are all frequent pain points that CISOs need to address.
