While security teams are tasked with securing their business's people, operations and assets, they're often faced with resistance from internal stakeholders when establishing their program budget.

For security leaders to successfully defend their funding, they must effectively communicate what security vulnerabilities are costing the business, know how their program supports each department, and learn how to counter common objections.

In our recent webinar, a panel of security experts shared valuable insights on how to get key stakeholders to understand why proper funding is critical to protect their organization's assets, employees and bottom line while ensuring business continuity.

By definition, critical infrastructure is vital. It needs to be operationally resilient, be able to reduce the potential attack surface, and minimize the new or expanding risks. Explore insights on how to secure critical infrastructure.

Critical infrastructure forms the fabric of our society, providing power for our homes and businesses, fuel for our vehicles, and medical services that preserve human health.

With the acceleration of digital transformation spurred by the pandemic, larger and larger volumes of critical infrastructure and services have become increasingly connected. Operational technology (OT) serves a critical role as sensors in power plants, water treatment facilities, and a broad range of industrial environments.
