Security priorities vary from industry to industry. Some organizations must prioritize data protection and identity and access management, some must prioritize host and endpoint protection and incident response, and others concentrate on security risk management and governance, compliance and organization.
Although industry priorities will vary from organization to organization based on various factors such as geographic presence and level of security maturity, a full understanding of these priorities will greatly help organizations to identify focus and investment areas.
