Posted on 10/7/14 10:47 AM by Get Schooled in EC-Council, in IT, in IT security, in Tips & Tricks

Many business principals find the whole issue of organizational security rather esoteric and are generally reluctant to allocate resources to it unless they can see a return on their investment. At the same time, technical staff charged with managing organizational security often find themselves fighting an uphill battle because, without the appropriate resources, they can’t do their jobs. As a result, both parties fall into a reactive rather than a proactive role, responding to incidents only when they affect critical operations.
