Public sector security - a cognitive dissonance
Too often senior management do not rate security as important, this tends to be because there are few senior managers who have come up through security-associated roles. Experience has demonstrated that although senior managers want security, they do not understand the full requirements, in that they will not allocate the resources (human, financial or infrastructure) necessary to effectively manage the security required for a particular project. The only way to ensure that senior management accepts the requirements for appropriate resource is to clearly brief them on the requirements and clearly associate it with business benefits.
