Enterprise Security (ES)
What will be the damage to your business if you have a financial, Credit card or Personal Information breach?
LEADERSHIP: Is Security and Compliance a part of your culture?
VALUE PROPOSITION: Has your business developed a Risk Mitigation Plan?
GROWTH FOCUSED: Is your security environment actively monitored and do you perform routine audits?
RESULTS ORIENTED: Is your business secure from threats internally and externally?
Turn on the news any day and you learn of yet another security breach at a well-known company. Boards of directors and executive management – as well as CIOs and IT staff – are on edge and on notice. There is a gap in their knowledge of the security posture in their organizations. In sum end, they are unsure whether their IT infrastructure will support their growth objectives for the future and/or create financial and reputation exposures in the present.
In today’s world, data and protecting that data are critical considerations for businesses. Customers want to ensure that their information is secure with you, and if you can’t keep it safe, you will lose their business. Many clients with sensitive information actually demand that you have a rigid data security infrastructure in place before doing business with you. With that consideration as the backdrop, how confident are you when it comes to your organization’s IT security?
Staying abreast of the threats and risks – not to mention making the right investments to keep up with them – is a tall order. This new environment requires tight collaboration between organizational leadership, led by CIOs and IT staff, to ensure systems and processes are current and in compliance.
Enterprise Security and the threats to businesses today are constantly evolving. Enterprises worldwide are witnessing a transformation in terms of technology and it is a constant struggle to keep pace with this ever changing landscape. There is urgency for the enterprise to bridge the gap between information technology and information security.

Risk = Threat X Vulnerability
You can reduce the potential for risk by creating and implementing a risk management plan. Here are the key aspects to consider when developing your risk management strategy:
- Assess risk and determine needs. When it comes to designing and implementing a risk assessment framework, it is critical to prioritize the most important breaches that need to be addressed. Although frequency may differ in each organization, this level of assessment must be done on a regular, recurring basis.
- Include a total stakeholder perspective. Stakeholders include the business owners as well as employees, customers and even vendors. All of these players have the potential to negatively impact the organization (potential threats) but at the same time they can be assets in helping to mitigate risk.
- Designate a central group of employees who are responsible for risk management and determine the appropriate funding level for this activity.
- Implement appropriate policies and related controls and ensure that the appropriate end users are informed of any and all changes.
- Monitor and evaluate policy and control effectiveness. The sources of risk are ever-changing which means your team must be prepared to make any necessary adjustments to the framework. This can also involve incorporating new monitoring tools and techniques.
The “Paradigm Approach” to managing security strategies and policy challenges include both the above and the following:
- Use of a commonly accepted framework that’s inclusive of governance and specific controls for measurement.
- Reassessment of threats and risks at least annually.
- Determining what investment your organization wants to make to address and manage threat profiles you define.
- Assumption that a security event will occur and plan accordingly.
