A Systematic, Comprehensive Approach to Information Security
Wednesday, July 6, 2005
Information security is a process of business risk management that must be performed on an ongoing basis. It is critical to take an approach to information security that examines the risks and security objectives within the environment in which the organization operates. Any comprehensive approach to information security must include a feedback mechanism that measures the performance of the process so that risks are managed appropriately and determines whether the organization's security objectives are being met.
