Transforming ITS Business Strategy into an Information Security Strategy

Governments at all levels and corporations looking to deploy the next generation of interconnected intelligent transportation systems (ITS) will have to account for risks, vulnerabilities, threats and exploits not normally associated with technology in the roadway today. Users and businesses will continue to demand increasing levels of access, compatibility and functionality between ITS enabled infrastructures and personal devices while maintaining privacy, availability and security. Organizations should implement an information systems security program that is linked to its strategic ITS goals and objectives, rather than simply focusing on patching servers and peripherals. The reasons are three-fold: (1) For Information Security to be effective in a given organization, it needs to be an overall part of the business strategy of the organization or support it; (2) Effective Information Security needs to be visible to and have the support and governance of the organization at the highest levels; (3) An effective information security program must be measurable and reportable as a business process.
