The number one IT expense in 2017 is predicted to be cybersecurity. Gartner expects the market to reach one trillion dollars by 2020, and according to the Harvard Business Review cybersecurity will be the fourth most important item that will be discussed in the boardroom in 2017 — right after corporate strategy, political changes and shareholder relations.

And asks him what he sees as the most important decision to be made by the C-Suite in 2017.
