Essential Considerations When Making Changes to Security
By Steve Ragan – October 17, 2013
When it comes to adjusting or adapting a security policy — that is, changing what’s already in place due to any previously unforeseen event such as a security breach, downsizing, employee termination, etc.—what are some key considerations that business leaders need to focus on or keep in mind?
“Start with first principles. Understanding what matters to an organization (PII? PCI? Intellectual Property?) is the jumping off point for a robust and modern set of security controls, and absent focus, organizations tend to react to incidents rather than organize a coherent set of investments and behavioral changes that will yield measurable results,” explained Kevin O’Brien, enterprise solution architect, at CloudLock.
“Know where you want to be as a result of your change, and ensure that you can apply metrics to it… Security is often at the junction of what end users are interacting with, and how; it makes sense to control for data walking out the door via print-outs if and only if your users are physically accessing files in an office with a printer, for example.”
