Influencing the Security Budget

Historically security managers have been marginalised from key decision-making roles in organisations but there is evidence this may be changing as security professionals are increasingly able to demonstrate that security is a business enabler. Perpetuity Research is seeking the views of security professionals, in order to better understand the obstacles faced by security managers/directors. We would welcome your insights.


You can share your views, anonymously, via our survey. It is open to any type of security professional/expert. The questions ask about factors that influence the security budget, factors that influence how effective security is, whether there are similarities between ‘in-house’ and ‘contracted’ security managers, and about factors that are important when purchasing security. The survey takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete and the deadline for responses is Friday 25th March 2022.


All participants are given the opportunity to automatically receive a free copy of the findings once the report is published (Autumn 2022). The research is being undertaken under the umbrella of the Security Research Initiative.
