How to Move Cybersecurity From a Cost Center to a Revenue Enabler


In Episode S4E12, our guest is Jim Nitterauer, Director of Information Security at Graylog. In a fun and informative conversation, BSM’s Steve Bowcut and Jim discuss how organizations can move cybersecurity from a cost center to a revenue enabler. 

Steve asks Jim to:

  • Discuss some of the costs organizations face trying to protect their systems, infrastructure, and data.
  • Explain why security isn’t typically viewed as a revenue enabler like other software costs often are.
  • Tell us why and how security can increase revenue.
  • Talk specifically about the costs that log management can reduce or eliminate.
