Security is the discipline of using effective protection measures to safeguard important assets from abuse. In other words, “security” is about protecting important things. Protection involves not just mechanisms (such as locks and doors), but also proper selection and use of mechanisms.
Properly applied, the various disciplines of information security really come down to risk management that is not fundamentally different from risk management in other situations such as finance and insurance.
