Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the C-Suite mindset toward operating expenses, such as security.
  2. Advocate for your security team and gain more responsibility.

  4. Position yourself and your team for budget success.


Participants completing this course may be eligible to receive Continuing Professional Education credit or CPEs toward ASIS re-certification.

To avoid being a budget cut, security leaders must reimagine their teams to get away from being labeled a perpetual cost center. In this webinar, learn how enterprise security leaders can position their programs from obsolete to indispensable. Striving to own business continuity and risk and resiliency as part of the security program positions security teams as a valuable business enabler.
