Hard pressed enterprises are consolidating security providers to simplify operations and make breach remediation simpler. But does this approach work, or does reducing complexity also reduce security – exposing the enterprise to a greater number of ‘unknown unknowns’?

Do company boards actually understand the risks – or is it the case, as a recent FCA report found, that board and management committee members can’t effectively describe their risk profile?

In this web seminar, our expert panel discusses why it is that executives at major organisations struggle to understand security and articulate their risks – and thus to adequately fund security - and who is considered responsible when breaches occur. And, using data from Computing Research, we examine whether the simplicity of management generated through provider consolidation improves security, or exposes you to greater risk – tune in to find out.
