Data security: protect your business
The recent unveiling of a £7m Police Central E-crime Unit to tackle Internet fraud says it all. Online crime has become a global menace, with up to 90% of offences on the Web now fraud related.
Andy Kellett, senior analyst at Butler Group says, despite many high profile security lapses, some organisations still view the purchase and support of security technology as a necessary evil. He says: "Though this is woefully misguided, money spent on security can be a non- productive drain on the IT budget if business-oriented objectives aren't kept in focus.
"Organisations should start to take IT security forward as a strategic, foundational capability. Risk assessment is an essential step to understanding the factors that bring about the need for security protection, and will enable IT security to be seen as a beneficial business asset, rather than as an expensive liability."
