· perceived value of the project
and, in turn, budgetary support.
· confusion around security
standards which can lead to controls getting in the way of business.
· requirements around ongoing oversight and audit which can impact marketing and sales initiatives.
Developing these relationships may be a natural and easy
evolution for you within the organization or it could prove difficult –
something that requires special tactics and strategies. Most projects live or
die based on mutually beneficial relationships, good communication, and
effective management. Consider the following questions to ensure success:
· Who is the ultimate decision-maker? In what ways can you connect with this person and foster the relationship necessary to see things through?
· What activities around web security have shown the best results? Who needs to be involved to help maximize your success? Keep in mind that outside vendors offering web security related products and services must be a part of this.
· Knowing what you now know about web security and its place in your business, what would you do more of or less of in order to get the most out of new projects?
· In what ways can you measure
success over time? What actions will need to be taken and what deliverables
will need to be made in order to keep your web security efforts visible?
