Information Security Architecture, Strategy and Planning 
   
"If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else."  Yogi Berra

The Strategy and Planning process is frequently overlooked and yet is one of the most critical tasks performed for efficient, value-based IT infrastructures.  In the rush to take care of the immediate threats from changing in compliance to new vulnerabilities, we often skip this vital step in the process.  Failure to do so means that the investment being made may not serve the needs of the organization in the long run which could result in costly upgrades or even the need to "forklift" an existing installation.  


   
A good strategy and plan allows you to chart a course that has been defined by the specific needs of your organization.  It also ensures that investments are made in a "directionally-correct" fashion.  This means that each element purchased has a place in the plan and a knowledge that it moves you closer to your ultimate goal.  Without a plan the investment made in a specific technology may not help to accomplish that final state increasing the total cost in dollars, time and man-hours to move to your organization's desired state.
