The establishment of a sound and solid security policy throughout the company will without doubt reap benefits in many areas. To supplement this policy implementation a dependable ‘Security Management’ application package will not only make the management of security policies easier to monitor but will in addition create an environment within the organisation where employees will positively influenced by the knowledge that the system is being regulated. If the company then makes use of a well thought out policy management program they are in the best possible position to prevent the worst from happening.
Unfortunately there are no guarantees. To stay on top the security department will always be in conflict with ‘bad guys’, there will always be a new challenges, new viruses, new worms, new trojans and new ways to place illegal personnel with new nasty gadgets to steal your company’s assets.
Remember – ‘There is no such thing as total security only levels of insecurity’.
