CSO Survey Details

By John Honovich, Published on Jun 02, 2009

Recently, a survey of CSOs was released. Key findings include:

  • This year 70% of security managers agree that the security leader's role is viewed as strategic and permanent. This is up from 14% in 2004. However, the article does not explain the reason for this increase.
  • 50% of organizations use no formal financial methodology for security budgeting. I am not surprised and suspect this number is even higher as respondents may want to give an answer that sounds better. Also, this question was offered as multiple choice so the accuracy is questionable.
  • 54% of organizations do not use a formal enterprise management risk program. That's a high number but one that I am not surprised at. This is probably even higher for smaller organizations.
Additionally, a survey article on the roles of CSOs [link no longer available] is also available. The article discusses security at multi-billion dollar corporations so the lessons learned may not be broadly applicable.
