(p.228) Conclusion
Harboring Data

Andrea M. Matwyshyn

Stanford University Press

This concluding chapter reiterates the four major themes of the preceding chapters: (i) a need to focus on the human elements in information security; (ii) a need to recognize the emergent nature of information security threats; (iii) a need to consider the multiple simultaneous contexts of information risk; and (iv) a need for immediate improvements in corporate self-governance. In the short term, companies must put in place rigorous codes of information security conduct and exercise vigilant enforcement. In the long term, companies must learn to build cultures of information security and develop a sense of collective corporate responsibility for information security, regardless of whether regulation requires them to do so. Meaningful improvements in information security require a commitment to security as an ongoing, collaborative process.

Keywords:   data security, information security, security threats, information risk, corporate self-governance, crporate responsibility
