Testing the Consumer
Introduction Security strategic plans impact every aspect of an organization because every business process and every person in the organization is subject to the security policies and practices (standards) adopted by the business. Th is includes employees, contracted staﬀ , partners, and suppliers, and extends to customers and shareholders as well. Understanding how security applies to each of these entities is essential to the formulation of an eﬀ ective security strategy. Without the input and support of these consumers, the plan is doomed to failure before the ﬁ rst page is written.
