Security Administration Practices
Security management involves the identification of an organization's most important information and the creation, documentation, and implementation of policies, procedures, and guidelines. Administration techniques that include data categorization and risk assessment can be utilized to identify potential attacks, classify assets, and evaluate security vulnerabilities so that effective controls can be put in place.

Security Architecture and Paradigms
This involves the principles, structures, and guidelines used to design, track, and secure OS platforms, hardware, networks, and application software plus the tools utilized to enforce various degrees of robustness, consistency, and confidentiality.

Access Management Systems and Methodology
Access controls are a set of technologies that operate together to build a security infrastructure to protect the assets of the information system.

Software Development Security
This addresses the important security concepts related to software development. Software development security outlines the environment where software is planned and produced and elucidates the critical part application software plays in ensuring information network protection.

Operations Security
Operations security has to do with identifying the management of hardware, media, and the technicians and managers with access privileges to any of these assets. Audit and monitoring are the mechanisms and techniques that allow the awareness of security-related activity and consequent actions to discover the essential factors and convey the associated data to the designated person, team, or process.

Physical Security
Site security addresses protection techniques for the whole physical facility, from the perimeter to the inside office space, including all of the IT network resources.

Data Encryption
Data Encryption involves the concepts, techniques, and processes of disguising information to ensure its consistency, privacy, and authenticity.

Telecom, LAN and Internet Security
This area concerns:

  • Network Structures
  • Transmission mechanisms
  • Transport formats
  • Security measures used to ensure availability, consistency, and confidentiality
  • Verification for transmissions over private and public communications networks and media.
