  • When I ask clients about their IT security strategy, I am generally surprised at the responses I receive. Most of the time, they give me a list of security program elements currently in play: firewalls, vulnerability management, IDS, anti-virus, etc.

    But just as a shopping list does not constitute a three-course dinner, a list of elements is not the same as an IT security strategy.  Nor is it the most optimal place to begin building one!
