Gartner Opening Keynote: The Economics of Cybersecurity: Using the ‘Dismal Science’ to Make Better Security Decisions

Economics is called “the dismal science” because scarce resources mean not every need can be met. As a security and risk leader with unlimited challenges and limited resources, you face difficult decisions about what to prioritize. Economic models and principles can help. In this keynote, we’ll look at how looking at security and risk dilemmas through the lens of economics can help you make better decisions. We will also discuss trends in security spending, and introduce new models for cost optimization, financial-based risk assessment and articulating the value of security.
