Security Benchmark Report respondents were asked if their security organization is Centralized, Decentralized or Regional.
The majority of respondents reported their security organization as being Centralized. For this survey’s purpose, the distinction between Decentralized and Regional security is that some Regional security programs may behave in a centralized manner for their determined region, while Decentralized generally means there may be security organizations in multiple locations within an enterprise functioning independently from one another. Those respondents choosing “Other” reported working in single sites or reported a “Partially Centralized and Partially Decentralized” structure.
