Yet adding new technology requires new skills, and it potentially adds even more complexity. How are organizations addressing these challenges?

This eBook explores strategies for getting the most out of your security stack. If you ever lie awake at night worrying about security issues you will face tomorrow, or even if you don’t, there is plenty of good advice in these essays.
