Most organisations do not know how to protect their information assets at all. They think that spending on information security is just a cost with no return. Even if some organisations believe in making such an investment, they are unclear about how and where such an investment should be made.
Every organisation that uses computers and information systems faces cyber threats. The problem is that the management most often remains unaware of such threats until the threats become a horrifying reality. Information security threats can actually bring an entire business down. Information security expertise is expensive. The management of the information security workforce is also a challenge because security governance is a specialised field, and this expertise is not readily available in most organizations. A major challenge is to integrate information security with the organization's fabric, i.e., to make information security practises a part of the organization's business as usual.
