Welcome to the Security Leadership Research Institute's Security Budgets, Program and Services Benchmark

An update to the most comprehensive security and risk management benchmark in the security industry is now being conducted by the Security Leadership Research Institute (the research arm of the Security Executive Council).

This year the benchmark will be focusing on security budgets, programs, services and staffing. There is no cost to participate and the resulting in-depth analysis and report will only be made available to those that participate in the benchmark

Q. What alternatives are there?

  1. You could pay for a benchmark from an organization that knows nothing about security and risk management.
  2. You could participate in a free benchmark run by an organization that only cares about the value they gain from publicizing the benchmark.
  3. You could participate in the only free benchmark run by an organization that not only knows the security and risk management inside and out but also exists for the benefit of the organizations participating in the benchmark.
The choice is clear; the Security Leadership Research Institute leads the industry in producing actionable research and metrics that to organizations that need to know where their programs and services stand relative to others.

There is no cost to participate and the resulting in-depth analysis and report will only be made available to those that participate in the benchmark - so participate now to be included in the upcoming report!

Q. How long does the survey take?
A. If you have access to the necessary information about budgets, staffing and security program/services it should take less than 10 minutes.

Q. What if I don't know the budget figures?
A. This information is required to participate. Please consider forwarding information about this survey to the person(s) who have access to budget information. They will be glad you did.

Q. Why should I participate in this survey?
A. All surveys of this sort suffer from the same issues. Is the information relevant to my type of organization, my size of organization, how my organization is structured? Our staff has extensive experience conducting research and we have the wealth of knowledge of the Security Executive Council to rely on to know what information is most valuable to the people who run security and risk management for organizations because they have already had to be successful doing that. When comparing this benchmark to other sources ask yourself, "what do the people running the survey know about running security and risk management for organizations?” If they don't have our background and experience you may be overpaying for their benchmarking services.

Q. What are the requirements to participate in the survey?
A. All data submitted in the survey is vetted. You must know the security budget figures and staffing information for your organization. You must also use the email address supplied to you by your organization for the business of the organization. At this time we are not accepting vendors of security services and products.

This landmark benchmark covers security program costs, program ownership, reporting structures and more.
