This IDC PlanScape provides insight into how an IT security program can be more effectively managed by better aligning the IT security services into functional activities supported by people, processes, and technology and applying activity-based costing managerial accounting methods."With this service-oriented approach to security, the costs align in a way that allows comparison for initiatives looking at new security models, outsourcing arrangements, process automation, and other interests," said Pete Lindstrom, vice president of Security Strategies. "This structure provides a better way to identify opportunities for more cost-effectiveness of a security program."
