Cost-Effective Security Controls: Maximizing Your Investment

Lionel Cochey, CISSP, CRISC, CISM

Senior Manager - Technology Risk Services, MNP 

An ever-increasing number of organizations understand the value of having strong security controls in place to protect their operations against security risks. News of attacks and data beaches are constantly reported - i.e., Sony, Nortel, Global Payments - to name but a few. With limited budget and a focus on cost, is there a way to be protected without investing in complex and expensive security controls and solutions? Can it be possible that simple but often overlooked controls can prevent most of the common attacks? 

The question becomes: How to prioritize security investments in order to balance efficiency with operations costs? In this presentation we will review some simple ways of implementing robust and efficient, yet cost-effective security controls.


Lionel Cochey is a strong leader with more than 20 years of work experience, in managing, auditing and consulting technology risks and security, across the financial sector and with the government. Lional's specialties include:

  • Building and implementing a new information security practice or program from scratch
  • Optimizing the information security function with the core business needs to reinforce the security posture in the most efficient timeframe and to save costs
  • Implementing IT risk / IT security incident management
  • Security assessment including the review of network devices, servers, databases and security tools configuration and vunerabilities across a wide range of technologies
