What Is Security?

Defining Security Is Essential In Any Organization

Security is defined in many ways within an organization, from locks on the doors, to computer passwords and anti-virus software.

Your definition of security is going to be different than mine. It’s also going to be different than the definitions from all of the stakeholders and employees in your organization.

How will your organizations act in 2017, as you establish and work to implement objectives to improve security?

In 2017 make sure that you measure, understand, and work to influence the definition of security in the minds of people that can short circuit your security improvement efforts.

Define Security First

A great way to begin defining security is to ask senior management and key stakeholders one question:

“What is your definition of security?”

Once you understand this, you can establish a communication bridge to shape their perspective from where it is to where it needs to be.

Additionally, to help decision makers to better understand how to move forward with their security initiatives we wrote a detailed article on the Top Ten Security Program Misconceptions.
