Pragmatic CSO Podcast #12 - Why do we need a business plan?

May 7, 2008

This week we get back into the Pragmatic CSO methodology, and jump into Section 2: Building Your Pragmatic Security Environment. The first step in S2 is Step 4 or Building Your Security Business Plan. Why do we need a business plan anyway? What's the point?

All is revealed in podcast #12. Well OK, not all - but I lay the groundwork on why the business plan is probably the most important of the 12 steps and what goes into building it. Over the next 2 months or so, we'll be delving deeply into the business plan and the associated efforts to "sell" the strategy to the senior team.

So, buckle up as we take off for the next leg of the P-CSO journey.

Running time: 5:52

Intro music is Jungle and I sign off with Acquiesce from Oasis' Masterplan album. Since the security business plan is YOUR Masterplan, I thought that was appropriate. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
