What is Enterprise Information?


No matter how you define your enterprise, it runs on information provided through technology. Successful enterprises pay attention to three critical areas:

People
Who generate, use and share information, and their cultural context

Process
How they use information efficiently and effectively

Technology
Which enables the generation, sharing and securing valuable information assets

Finding solutions for optimal use of information within organizations, to support decision-making processes or day-to-day operations, is always a challenge. An enterprise trying to manage enterprise information faces a world of complexity that is compounded by the continual evolution of information technology.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Combating Malware

NSA ReportThe recent Sony attack illustrates the rising danger from malware that causes malicious data destruction.  In response, the National Security Agency’s Information Assurance Directorate released the Defensive Best Practices for Destructive Malware report which provides a brief rundown of strategies to combat this type of attack.   The report states “Once a malicious actor achieves privileged control of an organization’s network, the actor has the ability to steal or destroy all of the data that is on the network."   

A proactive approach to security has never been more urgently needed and is a focal point of the CYBERWEST event in Phoenix March 25-26.  Visit the event web site to download a copy of the report.

What is Enterprise Information?

No matter how you define your enterprise, it runs on information provided through technology. Successful enterprises  pay attention to three critical areas:

People
Who generates and uses information - knowledge workers and decision makers

Process
How they use information efficiently and effectively

Technology
What technology is made available to them - its accuracy, quality and timeliness
