E-Business Security Challenges

Despite advances in security technologies, securing confidential and proprietary information has become more interesting and challenging than ever. In an attempt to keep pace with the onslaught of security woes, new technologies are often unleashed and implemented before due diligence and real understanding of these technologies occurs in the real world. Though understanding security technologies is noble, and certainly a diligent undertaking, the recent trends in corporate technology deployments have shown that most organizations do not have the resources and time to fully understand the technologies that they are deploying (Larson, 2003).

Security is not black and white. A firewall, if configured properly, will keep out 95% of the trouble-makers. Time and again it has been shown that it only takes a few bad apples to create a lot of work for everyone else. That wee 5% is a powerful force that only needs small trinkets of security holes to invade the corporate immune system, and anyone who has worked as part of an incident response team knows that once security has been violated, repairing the damage is time-consuming and often creates liabilities with alliance partners, suppliers, and customers.
