Obtaining Support and Funding from Senior Management

Throughout the late spring and summer months I had the great opportunity to participate in an talented workgroup sponsored and led by the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) to create a new, and quite valuable, resource for information security practitioners to help them obtain funding and sponsorship for the training and awareness programs.

This new document, “Obtaining support and funding from senior management” provides some good advice and resources to use when trying to fund information security and privacy awareness and training.
I participated as a reviewer in the group, but did provide one section within the report; “Obtaining support and funding from senior management.”
Also participating in the workgroup were a couple of fine and talented information security folks I’ve have the privilege to know for the past few years, Brian Honan and Dr. Gary Hinson.
I was happy to meet some new folks as well, and happy to now have them as some treasured contacts. They include (and I hope I’m not forgetting anyone)…
Isabella Santa from ENISA
Colette Hanley from Betfair Ltd.
Erik Heidt from Art of Information Security
Kate Dodds of SAI Global
Lucas Cardholm from Ernst & Young
Paula Davis from SAI Global
Robert West from Echelon One, LLC.
