Information security is vital for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer systems, resources, and data; it is important for business continuity, for profits, for the economy and for national security. Yet, though every year we load accolades on business heads for their successes and other side, the country has stayed silent to the monumental contribution of the security professionals.
