Project Management

Focuses on how security influences project management tasks and suggests refinements to existing practices. For example, project management can affect how well security requirements are satisfied in terms of how the inputs from the technical, management, and operational communities are coordinated. Planning has to reflect the resources, effort, and risks associated with securing a new technology such as Web Services. Design and implementation decisions may create new security threats, which should be represented in both project monitoring and planning.
