Companies struggle with finding ways to get the most protection for their investment dollars, balancing the need to comply with lengthy and ever changing regulations with providing protection against the ever evolving and increasing threats to their organizations.
During this discussion, the presenters will outline why removing security controls may be the best thing to do to improve your company’s security posture. Not just removing redundant controls, but focusing on expensive controls that no longer provide the amount of risk reduction that they used to in an enterprise environment.
- Present a framework to determine which controls to remove
- Understand what compensating controls exist to address removed controls
- Learn how companies have adopted this approach through case studies
