The article presents a discussion on return on investment (ROI) for a security project. ROI measures the difference between cost and the benefit. Measuring only a few advantages for the money spent is one of the problems with ROI as it fails to prove that spending money was a wise decision. For business executives, alarm monitoring alerts key individuals of significant threats quickly. Forrester Research's Total Economic Impact is one of the methodology of ROI and it depends on benefits, costs, risks and flexibility.
