Has your organization done all it can do to reduce the risk of a security incident or privacy breach?
The new report Ending Security and Privacy Leaks edited by Cutter Senior Consultant Rebecca Herold - one of Computerworld's "Best Privacy Advisers" of 2008 - offers expert advice and recommendations that will help your organization create an effective information security and privacy program.
