Making the Business Case for Security

When it comes to the business case for security, corporate security executives face serious challenges in getting a hearing from the senior management of their companies. A survey of corporate decision-makers by The Conference Board and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security finds that executives give most weight to security concerns on issues of operational risk, such as compliance and certification. Much less weight is given to security on strategic issues, such as competitive advantage and brand management.
