Security Framework

Team SecureVault can put together a comprehensive security framework for your organization. Typically included in a security framework are some of the following

  • An evaluation & implementation plan
  • Processes & procedures, as related to the scope of the security framework
  • Encryption policy
  • Disaster Recovery plan (DR)
  • Identity management plan
  • End user policies (email, ethics, password, acceptable use, etc)

An information security framework is important because it provides a road map for the implementation, evaluation and improvement of information security practices. As an organization implements its framework, it will be able to articulate goals and drive ownership of them, evaluate the security of information over time, and determine the need for additional measures.

A common element in most security best practices is the need for the support of senior management, but few documents clarify how that support is to be given. This may represent the biggest challenge for the organization’s ongoing security initiatives, as it addresses or prioritizes its risks.

Specifically, an enterprise security risk assessment is intended to be suitable for the following, which could be specific to any organization:

  • A way to ensure that security risks are managed in a cost-effective manner
  • A process framework for the implementation and management of controls to ensure that the specific security objectives of an organization are met
  • A definition of new information security management processes
  • Use by management to determine the status of information security management activities
  • Use by internal and external auditors to determine the degree of compliance with the policies, directives and standards adopted by the organization
  • For implementation of business-enabling information security
  • To provide relevant information about information security to customers

Overall, an organization must have a solid base for its information security framework. The risks and vulnerabilities to the organization will change over time; however, if the organization continues to follow its framework, it will be in a good position to address any new risks and/or vulnerabilities that arise.
