Risk management is key to having a strong security system in a company. However it can be easily over spent on. The problem with any security system is there will always be someone trying to find a way to break the system. With technology expanding at an ever increasing pace, it is much harder to create security systems compared to ones we use for physical intrusions. As the linked article discusses, there is evolving malware, breach tsunamis, cyber warfare, your own devices connected to a companies network, mobile payment systems, individual cloud storage…. the list goes on. All of those topics listed are an individual problem a company must assess. There needs to be a balance when trying to manage risks associated with your security system.
