THE SCOPE of the term "security" often seems vague, and the sheer volume of effort and areas of concern this may represent can be overwhelming. In looking at a number of security frameworks or standards, a common theme emerges that is quickly being adopted as a holistic and effective approach to security. This approach combines efforts and initiatives that go far beyond the purchase and deployment of technology.
