The article informs that this is the era of cyber terrorism, spamming, identity thefts, and regulatory compliance requirements. Enterprises are and need to be more conscious about how they expose themselves to the outside world; how they trust outsiders as well as insiders, what they do with consumers' data; and how they keep their business sustained, despite disasters. While reactive enterprises just counter threats that they were victims of, proactive organizations have started leveraging the investment on security to business value additions. Organizations have dealt with the problem of security management through varied means.
