August, 2007


Vulnerabilities are often introduced into an organization when changes are made to its technology, business processes, or facilities. Therefore, security should be an important element of project management, to ensure that the security implications of these changes are addressed.

Additionally, we review the positive impact that security can have on project management practices. (5 pp., 9 figs.)
