Managing Corporate Security in Mid-Markets

In smaller companies, security responsibilities tend to be more streamlined and centralized, as smaller companies tend to resist the proliferation of silos so common in large multinational corporations, making for fewer layers of bureaucracy in other realms of management as well. One consequence is that security executives are more likely to report to the top management of their companies in smaller firms.

 Financial constraints limit the resilience of IT operations at smaller companies in the face of system disruptions. Thus IT operations in smaller companies are less prepared for disaster recovery and business continuity than those in larger companies.
