SECURITY GOVERNANCE SERVICE

CYBER RESILIENCE THROUGH CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT & ENHANCEMENTS


Cyber Program Durability


If your security practices are not inherently designed to continuously improve over time, they will eventually become obsolete and too expensive to maintain, while delivering less value to your business.

CyberStash helps organizations establish cyber governance for one or more of their security programs to optimize risk, create value, maintain relevance, optimize resources, and meet stakeholder needs.

BUSINESS CONTEXT


To ensure the longevity of a security program, the established security practices should be governed appropriately. By monitoring key performance metrics, an organization can enhance its security practices and preserve the program’s Return on Investment (ROI) while continuing to create value.

To start with, corporate assets should be valued to demonstrate ROI as well as the value of the information security practices at risk. To justify the business case for investment in information security, it’s necessary to find out whether or not the program is cost-effective in circumventing security incidents that might do the following:

  • Impact the company brand

  • Impact business productivity

  • Result in the data breach of private records

  • Compromise intellectual property, or

  • Disclose trade secrets

  • However, faced with the considerable complexities of cyber risk and the uncertain effectiveness of existing controls, IT and security executives must determine where to focus attention and set priorities. Before making further investment, it is prudent to understand where existing investment has been made in security programs and how this aligns with business objectives and reduced risk. Implementing an organization-wide security governance framework is, however, a daunting task that is rarely achieved to the desired extent, principally due to insufficient resources, overheads, and management issues. By taking smaller steps and prioritizing security governance activities, organizations can select a program that focuses on the most effective aspects of information security practices. This selection process must be based primarily on the programs strategic alignment to support the organization’s business objectives while optimizing information security investment and setting it up for success

    OUR SOLUTION


    CyberStash provides organizations with skilled and experienced senior cyber security resources to play leading roles on the client’s security team, assisting them in their efforts to achieve their mission and objectives.

    CyberStash builds and manages the governance activities of a security program based on its Security Governance Framework, to ensure that information security is effectively managed and maintained.

    The vital signs of an organization’s information security program must first be measured to assess its performance against enterprise objectives. These performance metrics indicate how effectively the output of people, processes, and technology are achieving specific goals.

    CyberStash uses the consistent view of performance to accurately direct clients to continuously improve their security practices. A capability maturity model is used to assess the current state, and a program of work is designed to transition the security practice to an improved future state.
