Security as a business enabler

I often talk about security as a business enabler but very rarely hear others saying the same things. So I was pleased to read recently in Computer Weekly Etienne Greeff’s article Security sceptics should ‘just say yes’.

Greeff talks about taking a strategic approach to IT security to enable adoption of new technologies. Well worth a read.

“All too often, senior managers see IT security as a necessary evil or - worse still - as an inexorable cost that inhibits the growth of their business. When managed properly, however, the opposite is true: IT security can be a highly effective business-enabler.”
