An important element of planning and developing an information security management system is identifying the threats which the organization faces and assessing the impact and likelihood of the threats occurring and inflicting damage. This is followed by the design of the defenses through the development of a Business Continuity Plan, Disaster Recovery Plan, and an Incident Response Plan.
Policy and Governance:
One of the most important parts of an information security program is the policy and procedural components. Defining the proper use of technology and training the personnel using the technology is absolutely critical to a successful program. The overwhelming majority of threats focus on the human element of an organization and, as a result, most successful attacks involve compromising the credentials of personnel that have access and privileges on the system. Procedural defense is essential. Procedures are also very important to productivity.
Information Security Program & Management System:
Imprimis will identify the security controls and practices needed to achieve a high level of security and maintain that level indefinitely. The operational objective is an Information Security Management System or ISMS. The ISMS will be a key function within the organization.
Technology is a key capability of any modern organization and will become a more critical element in the future. Therefore, the selection of technology has major implications on both the strategic objectives and the security of the organization and its systems. Operational technology needs to be secured within the organization and it brings a number of organic vulnerabilities that need to be removed or neutralized. Also, security technology varies in effectiveness and Analyzing these factors during the selection process with Imprimis expertise can avoid expensive and costly mistakes and can lead to the optimization of investment dollars.
