    IN PICTURES: ARN's are partners prepared for the next wave of security roundtable (+39 photos)

But while the notion of securing the enterprise takes precedence across boardrooms in Australia, in reality, organisations remain weak on strategy, outlook and capabilities. As such, this ARN roundtable questioned who’s driving the security conversation in Australia, removing facts from fiction as the industry prepares for a new wave of security threats.
