GOAL: Have Unified, Desktop-to-Data Center Security Strategy and Infrastructure:  Always on, Global, Expert

RATIONALE:Security takes different forms in every organization.  Sometimes the priority is to protect data for regulatory reasons.  In others, the priority might be to protect the very existence of the organization.  One thing is certain:  Unauthorized access, intrusions, malicious activity and threats have reached new levels.  The key metric is that the organization must have a desktop-to-data-center security strategy that is global, proactive, and always on.  Increasingly, organizations are relying on global IT security experts to develop comprehensive strategies.

POTENTIAL RESULTS: Better compliance with industry regulations for data security and privacy, greater visibility into the network and fast response in the event of attack, effective management network and application risk with the same headcount, and better flow and quality of security information for management and planning
