A major focus of this book is guiding IT managers on how to secure the operations of their facilities due to increased threats from terrorist oriented attacks. As it was presented in the earlier part of the text, there are many procedures that would decrease such threats. However, the best protection is just to run the facilities, keeping in mind the systems approach to information security. In this way, we are able to optimize the protection of the workplace from any form of attack, including those from cyber-warriors and cyber-terrorists. In this chapter, we will present the essence of managing IT facilities from the security point of view.
