Too often organizations deal with security threats .
Enterprise security management (ESM) is a method focused on creating a security management framework, so that organizations can build up and sustain security for their system. ESM is a general approach that integrates policies, guidelines, responses and measures for various risks.
ESM has a very broad outlook that pertains not only to computer security threats but also to any risks that may affect an organization's core business.
- External security threats
- Internal security threats
- Failed software development or system processes
- Deliberate mistakes made by employees
In practice, implementers of ESM first seek to redefine the aspects of security as how it is viewd and approached to the system and later to eradicate it through effective measures.
