Cisco: Why We Strive for Security That Doesn’t Compromise Privacy

Security owns a complex relationship with privacy, one that can work to protect privacy or undermine it. It is often a compromise, one for the other. Enterprises and other organizations regularly balance this relationship when protecting information systems.
