Keep Information Security Business Centric

New data security regulations have elevated issues of information security to the strategic levels of organizations. A problem arises when the CISO is not able to advise the management properly because he is not able to articulate security issues in business terms.

Security specialists are often much more technology specialists than they are business experts.

They have to learn to focus less on information security and more on information assurance, involving the availability and integrity of data. Risk avoidance is less important than risk management. A risk management approach has to involve an analysis and prioritization of the information risks an organization faces and articulating them in business terms.





IT Security is a governance and management concern

Although security investment justifications usually focus on the negative impacts of realized security risks, companies should consider how investing in security can help them to...

  • enable new and improved types of products and services
  • improve market and brand position by being known as a trusted partner and a trusted provider of products and services
  • communicate with customers in a reliable, cost-effective, timely manner
  • conduct transactions with greater integrity and privacy, thus ensuring business throughput, customer satisfaction, and customer confidence, which can help to create and sustain customer loyalty
  • enable new types of customer/supplier engagement, including more timely and reliable value- and supply-chain interactions


Insufficient security investment will definitely increase the risk of compromise of company's business assets like:

  • Stakeholder value
  • Trust
  • Compliance and legal liability
  • Customer and partner identity and privacy
  • Ability to fulfill business requirements


Conversely, adequate security investment in these areas can create business opportunity.
