How to Secure a Cybersecurity Budget and Get Buy-in From the C-suite

Recent cyberattacks on everyone from Colonial Pipeline to JBS Foods to Twitch have proven cybersecurity is essential no matter which business you’re in. According to experts, companies should spend between 10% and 15% of their annual information technology (IT) budget on cyber defense, but the reality is few companies are even doing that. While spending money to prevent an attack is a lot cheaper than the cost of remediating a successful attack, it can still be hard to get C-suite buy-in for increased cybersecurity, and especially an increased cybersecurity budget. So how do you get organizational buy-in for cybersecurity? Once you have the buy-in, how do you scale?
