What's it all about, then?

When it comes to security we seem to start out with the best intentions and build a Fort Knox to protect our applications, data and interactions.

But shrinking budgets and juggling priorities often means it's a case of good intentions rather than vault-like security.

The result is either a potentially leaky security patchwork or a blanket approach that is expensive and difficult to implement.

Getting on top of the problem may mean turning the whole approach to security around. ®
