21st Century InfoSec Management and Beyond

Mar 10, 2000


The world has changed and continues to change at an exponential rate. This is having a major impact on the effective means to implement information security. We have to look at some basic often highly regarded principles used successfully and unsuccessfully in executing our profession - and be prepared to throw them away. Ranging from organisation, risk analysis, policy, technology through to the wider issues effecting security, this paper looks at a likely future and presents some of the key changes we need to undertake to ensure security functions at the heart of our businesses and affiliations. The conclusion is that if we don't adapt we, as a profession, will be displaced by the correct action from our businesses.
