Information Security is a business issue, not a technical one.
Business is dependent on information. Information assets vary between companies and whilst the risks and regulatory controls can be sector dependent, it is vital that management understand the range of threats and vulnerabilities they face. In an increasingly interconnected business environment the risks are real even if to some they are still not necessarily apparent.
Information Security is no longer simply an IT department risk. Companies have a duty of care to their stakeholders, their brand and their reputation. Responsibility needs to flow from executive management and down through a business.
- Define the strategy for reducing risk of unauthorised access to information technology systems and data.
- Ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
Companies who succeed in the above are those who can demonstrate the tangible benefits of investing in information security. Companies who are able to demonstrate that it enables rather than hinders business.
