A CISO’s Guide to Obtaining Budget: Know Yourself

This podcast is the third 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.

The typical CISO likely differs in significant ways from other business executives, perhaps in education, experience and also primary job responsibilities. So how do security leaders learn to speak the same language as their C-suite colleagues?

This episode of the “CISO’s Guide to Obtaining Budget” podcast series highlights the value of knowing oneself and one’s organization before appealing for funds and resources. Understanding how security fits into the larger corporate culture is crucial, as is cataloging all assets and liabilities that will influence conversations with the executive team.
