28 March 2018– Rome, Italy – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to security of project management information. The new resource is titled “The need for secure project management”. This article is a post by Dan Emory on SC Media.

Secure project management is a concept that blends the needs of project management and security. For the purposes of this article, project security should be thought of separately from product security. Security, as it relates to project management, is defined by the need to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of project information, which can include data from the following sources: risk, scheduling, costs, communications, contract information, staffing, and procurement.

Organizations will have differing needs to protect this information depending on the project and organization. An intelligence organization may have a need to protect all of the information associated with a project whereas a construction company may want to only protect its contract or procurement information.

To access this new resource, go to the Applications and Hot Topics section of the PMWL at, scroll down and click on “Security of Project Data and Information”, scroll down to articles.  Must be registered and logged-in as Free Trial, Professional or Scholar Member to access.
