Part 2: Securing WebSphere MQ > Management issues

Chapter 6. Management issues

An enterprise without a well thought out security policy is doing a disservice to its employees and to its stockholders. Because middleware is ubiquitous and largely unseen, it tends to be ignored when it comes to security planning. Many organizations, in fact, will spend more money on security guards patrolling an office than on developing and implementing an infrastructure security policy.

The nature of security exposures is such that they are unwelcome and that they arrive unexpectedly. People do not handle unexpected events well and do not like thinking about them. But just as disaster planning and recovery have re-emerged as a business imperative in recent times, all it will take is one major middleware security breach to panic world markets and to make management absolutely serious about middleware security. We would rather have our customers ahead of such an event rather than behind it.
