          Governance, Risk, and Compliance: Developing an End-to-End IT Security Policy

          Organizations today face cyberattacks and security breaches that are growing in frequency and sophistication. You need effective, enforceable security policies in place to help protect your data, infrastructure, and users and proactively manage your risk.

          One of the most important components of any risk management strategy is not the technology, but the organization, structure, documentation and management that makes everything work the way that it’s supposed to work. Every organization needs to think about what their overall process is going to be associated with building a strategy, and executing that strategy to keep them safe and secure. It’s not a matter of, “I wrote an acceptable use policy, or an employee security policy, or any other policy that an employee has to read and understand.” Rather, it’s about the process behind those requirements that ensures you’ve written all of the appropriate policies, and are managing and measuring their effectiveness.

          At a higher level, when you think risk governance, you must consider these factors:

          • Do you have a way to ensure that everybody who should have read and acknowledged a policy has done so?
          • Am I looking at my environment and understanding what risks there are?
          • Am I doing frequent penetration testing or scanning to identify risks?
          • Am I building an infrastructure and a process where I capture that, I categorize that, and I manage the remediation of that over time?

          These are the ingredients of a risk governance strategy. If you’re not incorporating them, then you’re relying solely on your technology to keep you safe and secure. It’s very difficult to prevent breaches these days. However, the most important thing you can do is know how to define and build a strategy that allows you to react appropriately when breaches occur. This is by no means simple. But our team can help.

          Why Partner with Connection?

          Our team of experts is backed by rich procedures and strong policy background to help you outline and understand important benchmarks of security. We’ll review your existing policies or help you develop new security policies that define how:

          • Users gain access to systems and data
          • Physical documents are protected in the environment
          • Assets are hardened, managed, and controlled from an IT security perspective
          • An Information Security and Risk Governance Program is built and managed

          We will help you develop a well-documented, well-defined security program from investigation to implementation. Then we’ll make sure that you have an ongoing process to maintain compliance with those policies over time.

          Your organization’s top priority should be to bring risk into an acceptable range. Our experts will work with you to prioritize and define that range and reconcile each of your risk items. We can help you reach acceptable risk levels associated with PCI, HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, and other leading industry and government security standards.

          Once you’ve documented your remediation plan, you need to put it into action through implementation. This means putting some level of people, process, or technology into place to help deal with the issues and bring your security risk into an acceptable range.

          Our Security Practice has the capabilities, experience, and expertise to address your critical governance, risk, and compliance needs. We can also help you perform remediation actions and advise you on how best to approach the implementation stage. We offer a complete range of services designed to help you achieve compliance and maintain it over time, from validating ongoing processes to policy authoring, consultation, and review.
