IT security issues are now becoming a priority enterprise operational risk (i.e., a risk created by a corporation's dependence on its systems, processes, and staff) to be managed. Corporate and government spending on IT security jumped from 2%-3% of the IT department's budget six years ago to 8% or more in 2004 . Even in the midst of a general decline in IT spending over the past few years, IT security spending continues to increase. (For more on security, see Cutter Consortium Enterprise Architecture Executive Updates, Vol. 6, Nos. 14, 15, and 16, and Vol. 7, Nos. 2 and 4.)
