Reputation is another critical organizational business success asset. Without a good reputation, customers leave, sales drop, and revenue shrivels. Reputation must be managed well. A component of managing good reputation is ensuring personnel and business partners follow the right information security actions to lessen the risk of something bad happening to information; such incidents will likely lead to very unseemly news reports and media attention.
There are many issues that impact corporate reputation that can be addressed through effective ongoing information security training and awareness activities:
MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ENTERPRISE-WIDE SECURITY
Risk assessment and analysis methodologies
The goal of an information security policy
Audit and validation
Divide and conquer
An action plan
