I am on an essay with regards to the following topic:

Information security management involves challenges that are essentially unique due to the combination of technical and organisational constraints. Identify two such challenges and discuss in depth how these can affect the way information security management is performed within an organisation.

I am uncertain of the items that I will need to include.

May I request for some examples of technical and organisational constraints?

Thank you

A technical limitation could be lack of processing power to perform a specific task, for example if you work for Yahoo Mail and you can't digitally sign every email then this can be seen as a technical limitation.

An organisational limitation could be not being able to use smart cards because the company culture does not allow such an authentication mechanism
