The term "smart security" means to be knowledgeable of both business and security basics, knowledgeable of the business market, and having a clear understanding of business principals. The key to smart security is understanding how to win and sustain executive leadership, deal with business realities, identify the root causes of business losses, and how to hold a frank and open discussion on loss when dealing with business risk.
This excerpt from a Security Executive Council Proven Practice presentation provides a glimpse into how to accomplish the goal of demonstrating the value of security to the business. In this presentation David Quilter
