In recent years, the escalation in cybersecurity spending has been compounded by the surge in interest rates. This led to increased borrowing costs and, consequently, a strong push from leadership to reduce expenses. Mike Chung, Chief Security Architect at ING, navigates the intricate balance between cost-efficiency and maintaining robust security measures. Within this pursuit, he challenges the various areas of spending such as personnel and cybersecurity products. From this perspective, he presents a strategy tackling these areas.
