"The information technology revolution has changed the way business is transacted, governments operate, and national defense is conducted. Protection of these systems is essential and continuous efforts to protect them have resulted in exponential growth in reported security incidents. There are threats from hackers, spies, corporate raiders, terrorists, professional criminals, and vandals -- all of whom have a vested interest and well defined objectives for challenging the technology for financial and political gain, leading to damages to the enterprise infrastructure."
