Organizationally, information security normally is considered a program enabling and optimizing IT security services for the entity in order to satisfy business requirements, while simultaneously providing strategic and tactical IT security infrastructure management that complies with applicable laws and regulations. Cascading from the generally accepted risk management goal of adequately addressing threats, opportunities, and weaknesses, a primary security risk assessment objective is to provide recommendations that maximize confidentiality, integrity and availability protection reflective of the operating environment; while sustaining usability and functionality.
