I recently learned about SKiP, Security Knowledge in Practice, in one of my classes at UAT and I am very intrigued by it.  I did not realize that the problem-based approach was the common.  I guess that is one of the great advantages of SKiP, being a process-based approach to organize and implement security.  I used to work in a small organization that was based on federal grants.  The turn-over rate for employees was also high.  Looking back now, I realize we utilized the problem-based approach to security.  Does anybody have any suggestions on how to begin attempting to build and sustain security for our information assets?  Would a “clean-slate” work best or would incorporating one asset at a time be the best way?  Also, does anybody have experience with SKiP and smaller organizations?  Any advice would be helpful.
