Network Security Isn’t Taken Seriously by Top Execs

One of the biggest challenges for IT employees is to get the CFO or CEO of their company to approve a large expenditure to secure their network. Whether it be the purchase of software to monitor rogue wireless access points or setting up a back up data center, it’s difficult to get approval. The first question most upper level managers want to know is how will this make the company money.

The answer to that question is simple, IT WONT! But it will save you a lot of money and headaches when you are able to prevent a data breach from happening. In most cases of data loss, something could have been done to prevent the breach but the appropriate security protection wasn’t in place. Hopefully as Washington puts more pressure on businesses to secure their networks, upper level managers will become more willing to spend money to do so.
