Good business practices mandate that security governance controls and safeguards be implemented. Companies must exercise due diligence in establishing security controls and enforcing them. Failure to do so can lead to financial penalties, loss of customer confidence and competitive advantage. The ESP implementation phase is part of a journey that contains many milestones over a longer time-span than other ESP phases. A key factor in successfully implementing ESP is to have a commitment from senior-level management. To ensure that this is the case, senior-level management must have an understanding of the benefits of ESP; ultimately making their business much more efficient and secure.
