Analyst(s): Information Risk Research Team


The importance of Information Security is rising rapidly as senior executives become aware that poor security can cause irreparable damage to the business. At the same time, Security itself has been evolving from a focus on risk reduction to one on risk management. However, many core security capabilities are still weak and in need of improvement. This study enables Security to assess and diagnose strengths and weaknesses, define a plan for improvement, and supply tools and templates to drive efficient implementation for each of the core capabilities.
