Security Management Practices
Security management entails the identification of a company's information assets and the creation, recording, and carrying out of policies, operations, standards. Management techniques such as information categorization and risk assessment can be utilized to determine possible threats, categorize assets, and rate security weaknesses so that effective measures can be put in place.
Security Architecture and Paradigms
This concerns the concepts, framework, and standards used to build, track, and secure OS platforms, equipment, networks, and application software as well as the controls used to police various degrees of robustness, integrity, and privacy.
Access Control Solutions and Processes
Access management systems are a set of mechanisms that work in unison to build a security architecture to protect the assets of the information system.
Applications Development Security
This addresses the key security principles that apply to software development. Applications development security outlines the circumstances where programs are designed and developed and elucidates the critical role application software has in providing IT network security.
Operations security has to do with identifying the controls over hardware, media, and the technicians and administrators with access privileges to these assets. Audit and monitoring are the tools and facilities that enable the identification of security-relevant events and subsequent actions to discover the key factors and convey the associated data to the appropriate individual, team, or process.
Physical security provides protection techniques for the entire facility, from the outside perimeter to the inside office space, including all of the information network resources.
Data Encryption entails the principles, techniques, and processes of cloaking data to ensure its consistency, privacy, and legitimacy.
Telecommunications, Network and Internet Security
This area has to do with:
- Network Structures
- Transmission mechanisms
- Transport formats
- Security measures used to provide availability, consistency, and privacy
- Authentication for traffic over private and public communications networks and media.
Disaster Recovery Planning
The Business Continuity Plan addresses the protection and recovery of business activity in the event of outages.
