Challenges and Best Practices in Information Security Management

Mark-David McLaughlin, Janis Gogan


Based on an extensive review of information security studies published in influential IS journals, this article provides insights that can help organizations implement strong policies and practices to prevent most information security incidents, and to recover from those that do occur. We discuss the challenges of information security management and identify best practices for addressing them. Our recommendations will help organizations accurately and quickly detect the breaches that will inevitably occur, respond effectively to them and learn from them.
