IT security failures: Detection and correction
Most companies focus their efforts on preventing IT security incidents. But too much attention on this front alone may mean attack detection and correction isn't given enough focus. In today's mobile, global environment with its sophisticated perpetrators, board members need to assume their company's preventive controls will fail at some point.

In this NACD BoardVision episode, Daimon Geopfert, RSM's national leader for security and privacy consulting, looks at IT security failures that could have been prevented through proper attack detection and correction. He discusses several key issues, including:
