What is the study of “security” all about? How about IT security?

What is it? I get the following stuff to my solution, is it right?

The purpose of computer security is to protect an organization's valuable resources, such as information, hardware, and software”
"Through the selection and application of appropriate safeguards, security helps the organization's mission by protecting its physical and financial resources, reputation, legal position, employees, and other tangible and intangible assets. … Well-chosen security rules and procedures do not exist for their own sake -- they are put in place to protect important assets and thereby support the overall organizational mission."
“Security, therefore, is a means to an end and not an end in itself”.

Cheers,
