Executive Insights Intel IT: Information Security should Protect and Enable
Information security can enable new usage models while protecting corporate assets.
The world is no longer flat. At Intel IT we realized we needed to rethink how we approach enterprise security. We cannot continue to spend all our resources trying to block every threat.
