Information security is not a discretionary budget item. Normally, companies spend tonnes of money for ERP, CRM, SCM, etc. What they never realise is that all these enterprise systems are designed to keep people in but for secure computing it is necessary to keep some people out and to keep only the desirable guys inside. To achieve that I feel enterprises should start looking at access controls, enterprise risk management and encryption technologies more actively.
