Protecting Essential Information: Securing the Foundation of the Internet Business Platform

Protecting Essential Information: Securing the Foundation of the Internet Business Platform

Cover
The Internet may be today's most crucial enterprise productivity tool. However, unfettered use of this business platform can endanger an even more critical business asset--an organization's essential information. Information at immediate risk ranges from sensitive intellectual property to financial statements to customer and employee data.

Security managers must shift their protection emphasis from guarding against inbound attacks at the infrastructure level--a model suited to perimeter boundaries and the Internet as a simple content resource--to guarding essential information against blended threats and accidental or malicious loss, in tune with Web 2.0 and the Internet as a business platform.

The requirements for Web security, email security, and data loss prevention have changed. Read on to learn:

  • Where and why traditional approaches fail
  • How accuracy and context drive effective information-focused security
  • What to do to protect essential information and say Yes to, rather than block, business processes that take advantage of Web 2.0 and the Internet business platform
