Every organization has finite resources to apply to information security. Understanding areas of risk and the organization's ability to monitor and mitigate risks is the key to developing an appropriate risk mitigation strategy. People looking to compromise the security of an organization look for the easiest or weakest link in the security profile of an organization. A balanced, holistic, and layered approach is required to identify and mitigate risks. Information security is an ongoing series of processes, procedures, and practices working together. The questions facing every organization relevant to information security are: •Where is the organization vulnerable? •How does an organization know what should be done? •How often should it be done? •What should not be done? •Are the resources available? •Does it make sense financially? Data Perceptions has developed a formal approach to helping organizations arrive at the answer to these questions and to provide a roadmap on which to proceed in their risk mitigation effort.
