    Security administration involves the identification of an organization's high-value data and the creation, documentation, and execution of policies, operations, and guidelines. Administration tools that include data categorization and risk assessment can be used to determine potential threats, classify valuable data, and evaluate security weaknesses so that effective measures can be implemented.

  • Security Infrastructure and Models
    This concerns the principles, framework, and standards followed to design, monitor, and secure operating systems, equipment, networks, and applications plus the controls used to police various levels of availability, integrity, and confidentiality.

  • Access Control Solutions and Processes
    Access controls are a collection of mechanisms that operate together to create a security architecture to protect the assets of the information system.

  • Software Development Security
    This covers the important security principles related to application development. Software development security defines the circumstances where programs are designed and produced and explains the vital role application software plays in ensuring IT network security.

  • Secure Operations
    This has to do with determining the controls over hardware and media and overseeing the operators and administrators with access rights to any of these resources. Audit and tracking are the tools and facilities that permit the identification of security-relevant activity and consequent efforts to discover the key elements and convey the associated data to the appropriate person, team, or mechanism.

  • Physical Security
    Physical security addresses protection techniques for the entire facility, from the perimeter to the inside office space, including all of the information system resources.

  • Cryptography
    Cryptography entails the principles, means, and methods of disguising information to ensure its integrity, privacy, and authenticity.

  • Telecom, Network and WAN Security
    This area has to do with:
    • Network Structures
    • Transmission mechanisms
    • Transport protocols
    • Security measures used to provide reliability, consistency, and privacy
    • Verification for transmissions over private and public communications networks and media.
  • Disaster Recovery Preparedness
    The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) addresses the protection and restoration of commercial activity after network disruptions.

  • Risk Analysis
    Risk analysis evaluates a company's vulnerability to cyber attacks, estimates the damage potential of specific modern threats, and identifies best-practice controls and mitigation procedures to minimize vulnerability.

  • Law, Investigation and Ethics
