Security Magazine’s January 2010 has two major features that would gain from your Blogged input.

Securing the Global Enterprise -- There are common and unique needs for chief security officers, security directors and managers whose mission spreads out globally. HOW DO YOU SEE IT? What do you believe are the differences and distinctive requirements and needs of global enterprises that can impact procedures, policies, planning, use of technologies, use of systems integrators/consultants, and use of security services as well as global risk management?

An additional goal was to provide enough flexibility to allow the standard to be applied to a wide variety of applications on a wide variety of networks and systems.
