Rich Mogul: VC Panel - Security Business Strategies During a Recession

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All too often we forget that economics, not any collection of vulnerabilities, exploits, or technologies, affects the practice of security more than any other single factor. Economics determines what data the attackers target, what resources we have for defense, and what technologies are at our disposal. Over the past year we've seen all aspects of the global economy affected by the current recession, and security is no exception.
Our panel of investors and analysts will present their latest findings on the current state of the business side of the security industry, and how to best thrive in a down economy. Is cyber security immune, as some like to claim, or will enterprise budgets be slashed as new technologies wither without funding? Are startups better off now, or will security innovation have to migrate back to the large vendors? Can you take advantage of the downturn to pressure your vendors for better prices and services? Does the recession create opportunities to improve security strategies? How does the economy affect the offensive side of security? As we answer these questions, our panel will also review the major security business trends for the next three years, with specific predictions on which technologies and vendors will survive, which will die, and how it all affects the day-to-day practice of security.
