Just as business intelligence helps enterprises make decisions that maximize opportunities and minimize business risks, security intelligence enables them to better detect threats, identify security risks and areas of noncompliance, and set priorities for remediation.

This white paper is structured so that each page is its own "mini-white-paper" but each is also part of a total look at better structuring requirements documents, processes and content completeness. At the end of this paper is a one page "tear-out" summary which is both a shortened distillation of the content, and a diagnostic tool to start a peer discussion on your organization's performance.
Requirements quality is tangible. It is possible to look at the specific characteristics of requirements documentation and determine if it is sufficiently clear, accurate and complete to lead to a successful project. Since flawed requirements trigger about 70% of all project failures,1 this paper will present some hard and fast rules for looking at requirements documents, in any format, and being able to determine if they are reasonably well constructed. It will outline the key points to look for in a requirements document, and why this can save a company hundreds of thousands of dollars. Finally, it will offer five straightforward questions to address when evaluating requirements quality. The paper is not intended to be a full audit of requirements, but rather act as a guide and checklist for evaluation.
