New Benchmark Offers Detailed Comparison Data for Security Programs
July 22, 2021 – The Security Leadership Research Institute (SLRI) has released the results of its 2021 Corporate Security Organizational Structure, Cost of Services and Staffing Benchmark.
A few highlights:
Security leaders have used the budget, title, and reporting data provided by this benchmark to avoid budget reductions and secure job title changes to better reflect their level of responsibility.
The 2021 results include more detailed data breakdown and more comparison data than previous versions of the benchmark. The full report includes:
The report also details security’s responsibility and accountability by program (e.g., supply chain security, IT forensic investigation, business continuity, asset protection), broken down by revenue, number of employees, budget, and more.
The SLRI carefully vets responses and respondents to ensure a high level of confidence in the reliability and accuracy of benchmark data. No other organization focuses exclusively on quality, meaningful research specific to the corporate security function.
To access the full report, participate in the benchmark. It takes only 15 minutes to complete. And please consider letting your peers at other organizations know about this effort. The more participants we have, the more valuable information we can provide.
