"In general, policy and risk management are still two separate areas and both are showing quite a bit of promise. Policy management is further along in maturity. More maturity in risk management practices will ultimately be necessary to help move security [professionals] up the chain of command and give them more exposure and higher priority in the business." -- Chris McClean, analyst, Forrester Research
