Information Security has emerged as an important focus area of Enterprise IT Quality. Yet, despite the focus, every year brings news of massive security breaches. Some of the major security breaches of 2019 include:
- Quest Diagnostics (12 million records)
- Capital One (106 million)
- Facebook (540 million)
- First American (885 million)
Where is the intersection between security and quality? A secure system means that data and systems will be protected from unauthorized access. Quality means that the system is promised to work according to design and purpose. Does security merely intersect with quality or is it a subset of quality?
