The Challenge of Information Security Management, Part 1

Here’s a great article about the challenges we face as network security admins on Microsoft and mixed infrastructure networks.

In this article, Jesper Johansson discusses:image

  • Can we get rid of the technology that introduces security issues?
  • What are we really protecting? – our jobs, our company or data?
  • The defenders Dilemma – who are the “bad guys” given our role as data defenders?
  • Major conflict – business agility versus data security
  • Keeping the Lights off – turn on lights that support the mission, leave the others off
  • What happens if you neglect information security?
  • Watch out for the G-men, they’re a’ coming
  • What is considered acceptable risk (security is always a compromise)
