If you’ve been reading the blog, you’ll notice that “shift" is a common theme here with the Security & Risk team. We believe 2010 represents a shift in how CISOs will support their businesses. Today, I wanted to write about how we drew some of these conclusions. This last summer, Forrester conducted a series of in-depth interviews of the various roles we serve. For me, that entailed 30 interviews with various security and risk executives. The goal was to better understand information security and risk priorities and how we can better meet those needs. I must say, it was unlike any research project I’ve undertaken at Forrester. Sure, we asked the normal questions like “What is your role and responsibilities?” and “What are your top priorities?” But I also had the chance to answer very atypical questions like “Who do you turn to for trusted advice?” and “What sources of information do you find most valuable.?”
As a result, we’ll be changing our research heading into 2010. We learned that:
Although we wrapped up this research in September, it’s an ongoing effort. I’ve continued the dialog with dozens of additional information security and risk management execs — and now I want to hear from you. Are the changes above valuable? What else do you want to see from the Security & Risk team here at Forrester?
