Juniper Networks, Inc. Signs Partnership with the RAND Corporation
Jun 10 15
Juniper Networks in partnership with the RAND Corporation, unveiled new insights into the economic challenges, trade-offs and demands facing companies as they protect themselves against increasingly complex security threats. The in-depth report by leading economic and cybersecurity experts at RAND found chief information security officers (CISOs) often face a chaotic and confusing landscape when deciding the most efficient and cost-effective way to manage the risks posed by security to their business. Most troubling, the research indicates that many companies are spending increasing amounts on cybersecurity tools, but are not confident that these investments are making their infrastructure secure. Juniper Networks believes this dynamic is due to a lack of solid calculus that considers both the cost of security tools and resources, and the potential cost of a breach, which by definition is neither certain nor predictable. CISOs need a way to better understand the variables that most influence the cost of managing cybersecurity risk holistically and the different decisions they can make to protect their organizations. With RAND’s model projecting the cost to businesses in managing cybersecurity risk set to increase 38% over the next 10 years, Juniper believes that the time is now for organizations to start managing security spending and risk management as a discrete business function.
