As newly formed cybersecurity programmes are deployed, we explore how leaders are leveraging new capabilities to guard against volatilities and unlock business opportunities.  

In February 2022, Nimbus Ninety’s Disruptive Trends Report 2022 identified a 53% year-on-year increase in investment in cybersecurity technology. Since then, technology leaders have been busy executing IT infrastructure that is demonstrably secure and tightly tied to business value creation. 

Over the course of this roundtable discussion, we will share advice from a leader who has recently matured their IT infrastructure, before debating how best to strategically align IT budgets and projects, with business priorities and objectives. We’ll close with key takeaways for communicating the value of outcome-driven cybersecurity.
