A CISO’s Guide to Obtaining Budget: Exploit Pet Projects

This podcast is the sixth in a six-part series examining the difficult task of securing resources for IT and security needs. In each episode, John Dickson, principal and co-founder at Denim Group, will discuss challenges and share recommendations for how chief information security officers (CISOs) should approach the task of obtaining budget.

CEO-sponsored and other capital expenditure (CAPEX) projects typically involve more resources than what’s included in the annual operations and maintenance (O&M) budget. Moreover, pet projects are often subject to significantly less scrutiny.

This final episode of the “CISO’s Guide to Obtaining Budget” podcast series focuses on how CISOs can add security components to CAPEX projects, effectively positioning themselves “upstream” of security needs. Understanding where and when to insert security initiatives into larger projects is a common denominator of success for many security leaders.
