The goal of security management is to identify all of an organization's critical assets, such as its people, systems, data inventory, security controls and processes. This is one of the most important elements of an organization as it is responsible for setting up, documenting, developing, and implementing a cybersecurity program for managing and securing the organization and its' people. Every sound business has some sort of security management, which ensures that all of the company's vital information is protected, the processes are well defined and planned, and the assets are well secured.
When it comes to definition, design, change management, implementation, and updates to the program, security management is heavily reliant on repeatable organizational processes that adhere to the best management practices to drive information security. When an organization adopts new and more efficient processes or new technologies, security management must also be updated.
When new technologies are introduced, previous ones should be retired from use as redundancy and complexity occur, change should be effectively communicated within the organization, teams must be trained on the new technologies and dependencies, and processes may need to be changed, threats and the risk management program updated. Many firms fail to keep up with these developments, resulting in many sets of solutions performing the same thing, confusing and overly complicated technical processes, and a terrible workforce experience.
Our consultants have assisted numerous clients in various industries, including the defense, manufacturing, financial, and investment sectors, in achieving cost savings, operational confidence, process efficiency, and funding for security programs. We do that through an analysis of your business needs, gaining visibility into existing programs, analyzing internal compliance, policies, and standard adherence, as well as evaluation of the security operations. Once our analysis is complete, we enable the organization with a training plan for management in the form of interactive tabletop exercises, recommendations for changes in processes and any gaps that may appear in competency, continuity, expertise, governance and your organizational framework.
