Security Risk Management: The Answer to Security
Jack writes "It used to be the case that only the most technical members of the IT department understood IT security. Viruses, Trojans and worms were not terms used outside the IT room, management did not yet worry about hackers or ‘zombie’ machines, and the board had absolutely no idea what a zero-day attack was, let alone how much damage it could cause. Now however, with computers (and their attendant threats) a ubiquitous part of virtually every organisation, IT security has slowly but surely risen through the ranks to become the business-wide issue it deserves to be."
