The author reflects on enterprise resource management (ERM) in the U.S. ERM is becoming the new framework for information security as chief information officers confront concerns on regulatory compliance, corporate governance, intellectual property protection and infrastructure attacks. The aim is to integrate risk management into business decisions and develop a risk culture that is appropriate to an increasingly dynamic business environment. A problem in most ERM strategy is on the content-monitoring technology, which can only detect known security violations. Content monitoring will become improved if devices are able to watch incoming and outgoing traffic as well as automatically capture, classify and store analyzed content for future review.
