Imagine that you are building a new office building. You trust the builder to include all the necessary components, such as the foundation, framing, wiring, plumbing, and walls. What would happen if a couple of days before you moved in, the builder told you that he had forgotten to install the plumbing? Obviously, the time and effort involved at this point is substantial and will considerably delay your move-in date, and will it really be to the same standard as if it were installed from inception?

Planning for security enables your projectís success by dedicating sufficient time, money, and people. Policy, documentation, and a review of requirements help you ensure that all functions required by a system are implemented correctly
