Can IT Compromise On Security Without Being Compromised?

When it comes to security, IT's job is to do whatever it takes to keep the chain's data safe. But with budgets being universally tight—and nowhere more so than in IT, where the only things offered are potential cost reductions and risk avoidance, with no revenue boosts in sight—compromise is mandated.

But how far does a chain have to go? And what choices are reasonable, and which ones are a little too dangerous? Those are the first issues StorefrontBacktalk is exploring in a series of GuestView columns that will be appearing on a new blog launched by security vendor McAfee. The first of our columns launched Wednesday (Oct. 14).
