Bar chart showing comparison. The 2018 Security 500 Benchmarking Study.

Would you like to see your security program highlighted in Security magazine’s 2018 Security 500 Report?

From time to time SMR shares information about non-SMR activities or projects we think are deserving of your attention. This month it is the opportunity to participate in the 2018 Security 500 Benchmarking Study.

Hosted through BNP, participants in this year’s Security 500 Benchmarking Study can look forward to seeing how their organization stacks up against others when the results of the survey are published later this year.

The Security 500 Conference will be held in Washington on November 12, 2018, and final results from the Benchmarking Study will be published in the November 2018 issue of Security magazine to coincide with the conference.

The 2018 Survey is available online. The survey form is impressive and measures metrics across an entire organization. Don’t be deterred initially by the length of it - it should take only about 10 minutes to complete.

Each participant will receive a free, confidential benchmarking report at the end of the year that compares their results with similar enterprises in their sector. You additionally have the option to be ranked in the report or listed alphabetically in your sector.

We hope you will spend a few moments taking the survey to produce valuable data for both yourself as a security practitioner and for your sector as a whole.

Take the survey now!
