Gartner: Projects to focus on for 2021. “Security and risk managers must focus on adding value to the business and reducing the risk of the organization”

Kymatio Articles Gartner top 10 projects for 2021

Brian Reed, Sr. Director Analyst, notes that “we must look beyond basic protection decisions and improve organizational resilience through innovative approaches to detection and response, and ultimately, recovery from security incidents”.

According to Gartner, security and risk management experts are focused on solving immediate problems associated with security controls, as identifying vulnerabilities, or prioritizing efforts and resources, among others. But from the advisory company they suggest that what should be asked would be “which projects will generate the greatest value for the business while reducing the risk of the organization in a constantly changing security landscape.”

With this premise, Gartner has published its annual proposal for key projects, being this 2020-2021 edition highly focused on risk management.

The choice of projects is based on Gartner forecasts and adjusted for the impact of COVID-19, focusing heavily on risk management.

Kymatio helps organizations to achieve several objectives outlined in these projects, thanks to its robust proposal for automated risk management and the focus on the human factor.


The key Gartner projects in the list for 2020-2021 in which Kymatio plays a significant role are:
