Cover Story - Strategically Securing Your Information Assets
Never before have information assets been so vital to success--
or so vulnerable to loss. According to published reports,
organizations have lost billions of dollars due to breaches in
computer security involving the theft of proprietary information,
financial fraud or sabotage of critical data. Deloitte Consulting
has designed a five-step approach that views security as a business
challenge, not a technology problem. By following these steps,
organizations can minimize their security risks and maximize their
return on IT investments.
