Whether a large corporation or small, it's essential to keep the message simple, especially when first introducing the idea of Information Security to Senior Management. "A picture is worth a thousand words," says Crutchley. "If you can help the CEO to visualize ISO17799 you've accomplished the task."

Information Security is NOT insurance. It's a business principle. It's an art. If the company understands that, then whether Information Security does or does not produce a return on investment is no longer important. What is important is that the company's information system is indeed as secure as it can get.
