Do you have the same team managing your administrative security (user permissions, access controls) and your technical security (antivirus, firewalls), or are they managed separately? What factors influenced your organization's decision?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I assume the factors that might determine if this is handled by one or two teams might include:

1- size of the org;
2- available budget;
3- governance/compliance needs;
4- risk appetite/awareness;
5- culture.

    In the last Org I worked in, it was the same team (although could be in some cases different individuals). In the previous one (much bigger and subjected to more compliance requirements) it was done by separate teams. I assume factors were size, budgent, compliance needs, and culture (first was more entrepreneurial).

    In an ideal world, these may be different teams. The reality of it is that teams do it all in most environments.
