Security Management Practices
Security management involves the determination of a company's most important information and the creation, documentation, and carrying out of policies, operations, and guidelines. Management techniques such as data categorization and risk analysis can be utilized to identify possible attacks, classify assets, and rate system vulnerabilities so that effective controls can be put in place.

Security Infrastructure and Paradigms
This covers the concepts, structures, and standards used to design, monitor, and secure operating systems, hardware, infrastructure, and applications as well as the tools utilized to enforce various degrees of availability, consistency, and confidentiality.

Access Control Solutions and Processes
Access controls are a set of mechanisms that operate in unison to create a security infrastructure to protect the assets of the IT network.

Software Development Security
This covers the key security concepts that apply to application software development. Software development security outlines the environment where programs are designed and produced and elucidates the vital role software has in ensuring IT network protection.

Secure Operations
This concerns determining the controls over hardware, media, and the technicians and managers with access rights to these resources. Audit and tracking are the mechanisms and facilities that allow the awareness of security-related activity and follow-on actions to identify the essential factors and convey the associated data to the appropriate person, group, or mechanism.

Physical Security
Site security addresses protection mechanisms for the entire physical facility, from the perimeter to the desk, including all of the information system resources.

Data Encryption
Cryptography entails the principles, means, and methods of cloaking data to preserve its consistency, confidentiality, and legitimacy.

Telecom, LAN and Internet Security
This area involves:

  • Network Structures
  • Transmission mechanisms
  • Transport formats
  • Security measures implemented to ensure availability, consistency, and confidentiality
  • Validation for traffic over private and public networks and media.

Business Continuity Preparedness
