Kick me whilst I'm down
I'm asking for funding, I'm being told there isn't any for most of it but here's some scraps - see what you can do with it.
When an FOI comes in asking how much we spend on Cyber Security EVERYTHING is thrown in, AV software, switches, firewalls, random staff member salaries who perhaps answered an e-mail relating to ransomware at some point but in reality it's just me and 20K worth of web filters a majority of time.
If I see a product that could help us, build a business case, go to a mini tender and then I'm told I can get half of the funding I need and stated in the business case there really isn't anything I can do. I can't protect half the sites, that's completely bloody pointless when they are interconnected.
I need either a senior staff member to be fired or locked up before I'll get the backing I need.
I also need my own CYBER SECURITY BUDGET rather than having to begging to other departments for it, we need money ring fenced for this sort of thing and if we already have, why do those of us who are in the position to make the most of it not get control of it???
I need more coffee.
