If you believe that your culture is just not “security ready,” then you might consider outsourcing all your physical and digital security. Regardless of how you source the gaps, you will need unambiguous security governance. Be harsh here: take no prisoners; accept no breeches or violations. If you’re a public company, redouble your security efforts—and budgets. Organization Forecast The segmentation of technology into “strategic” and “operational” technology is driving significant organizational changes.

The key here again is spending segmentation: how do the annual expenditures break down per employee per year?
