SLRI Seeks Input on Continuum of Convergence

March 3, 2022 – The Security Executive Council’s (SEC) Security Leadership Research Institute (SLRI) is partnering with Kennesaw State University’s Coles College of Business to research the current state of security convergence.

The SLRI recognizes that there are a variety of ways in which corporate and cyber security interact within organizations, so rather than referring to convergence as a singular achievement, they define it along a spectrum of collaboration in which most organizations can find themselves.

Through this research, they hope to build an improved model of how corporate and cyber security can or should work together for optimized risk mitigation. The study will also identify the benefits and costs that come from security convergence at different places along the convergence continuum.

The SLRI is looking for security practitioners to participate in a 20-minute survey to help build out this research. All information collected will be kept confidential, and results will be shared only in aggregate form, with no link between participants and the organizations they represent.
