Cutting down on vulnerability requires vigilance in creating a secure foundation.

Security, unlike beauty, is not in the eye of the beholder.

Difficult as it is to measure, security is best described as an absence of vulnerability—and your organization is almost certainly vulnerable to something. No matter how secure you think you may be, someone out there is trying to find a hole you havent plugged, a flaw you havent discovered, a bug you havent yet located.

Dont worry. Protect yourself.

In these links, youll find the combined expertise of the Ziff Davis Media Enterprise Group to help you: the in-depth technology knowledge of eWEEK, the project planning and costing assistance of Baseline, and the boardroom perspective on the scope and nature of the problem from CIO Insight.

As you explore these links, well walk you through a five-point plan to create a secure foundation, the nuts and bolts required to establish secure data sharing, and some best practices for maintaining a secure enterprise.

Youre also holding in your hands the results of an exclusive study showing that high-level technology executives may not grasp the big picture about how much money is being spent on system security today.

By the time youre finished, you should be decidedly less vulnerable than you are now. And that should be a beautiful thing to behold.
