QOTD on Sound Security Investments

Put simply, this means that spending hundreds of thousands of Pounds, Euros or Dollars on a security system, plugging it in and switching it on - then presuming your company is secure - is a totally inadequate approach, because it usually results in relatively poor levels of protection for your organization as the threats from criminals are constantly changing. Configuration, constant evaluation and constant updating of security rules are essential to the IT security of a business. Of course, the degree to which protection is needed is a matter of balancing risk and cost, and this equation is a unique business decision as with any other senior management process.
