Securing the Organization: Creating a Partnership between HR and Information Security

Securing the Organization: Creating a Partnership between HR and Information Security

Securing infrastructure is one of the most critical issues facing business and governments today worldwide, as it becomes conventional wisdom that the health of the collective cyber community is vital to the growth and stability of the global economy. As an outgrowth of that realization, it is becoming widely accepted that information security professionals are critical to protecting the trusted environment in which global Internet communications, instant information access, and business transactions are made possible every day.

It's become conventional wisdom among information security professionals that people are the most critical part of effectively securing an organization. From the staff accountant end user to the Board of Directors, every person involved in an organization plays a role in that organization's security. This includes having first-rate information security personnel to create policies and oversee implementation, obtaining management buy-in and support for the security program, and ensuring employees throughout the enterprise understand, respect and evangelize security policy.
