Technology sophistication and business adoption, the proliferation of hacking techniques, and the expansion of hacking motivations from financial to now social, political, or strategic motivations have resulted in organisations facing major security risk. Every organization needs some kind of information security program to protect its systems and assets.
Just because you haven’t identified a breach doesn’t mean you’re secure.
A good security program is proactive about closing security gaps because ignorance is never blissful.
Performing an accurate assessment of your current security operations and maturity levels can be extremely difficult when you don’t know what to assess or how, along with the fact that an assessment alone is only the starting point. Senior management wants to know that adequate targets have been determined and there is a robust plan for how they are going to be met.
Tandem CIO's framework integrates several best practices to create a best-of-breed security framework and includes COBIT 5, ISO 27000 series, NIST SP 800-53, and CIS critical security controls to ensure all areas of security are considered, covered and reported on.
A comprehensive current state assessment, gap analysis, and initiative generation ensures nothing is left off the table.
Tested and proven rationalisation and prioritisation methodologies ensure the strategy you generate is not only the one the organisation needs, but also the one the organisation will support.
Security Governance and Management
Security programs tend to focus on technology to protect organisations while often neglecting the people, processes and policies needed to manage the program. It seems daunting and almost impossible to govern all the aspects of a security program which may lead to several problems:
- The security team often does not understand business goals.
- The organisation lacks direction regarding security initiatives and how to prioritise them.
- Risks are not treated appropriately.
A security governance framework is a system that will design structures, processes, authority definitions, and membership assignments that lead the security department toward optimal results for the business.
Our governance is performed in three ways:
