Are Your Computers Attractive Targets?
Security Breaches are on the Rise - Version 7.0 of the Security Manual Template Addresses Issues 

The people of the world have granted control of their existence to computers, networks, and databases. People own property if a computer says they do.

People and enterprise are who the computer says they are.

IT Infrastructure is a Foundation Block That Management Rests
PCI-DSS compliance drives CIOs to get back to basics

IT InfrastuctureComputers today are an integral part of day-to-day business, commerce, and personal life. E-mail and instant messages are heavily used for communications. Enterprise administrative business processes depend upon computer automation, record keeping, and dependable, confidential, and quick access to reliable information. The enterprise operational processes make use of computers for communication with employees, vendors, supplies, and customers.

Each operator of those devices has a necessary and important part in preserving the integrity of the network, just as every citizen has a necessary and important part in preserving a society.
