Information security management
The business world is increasingly reliant on technology to supply information and communication facilities to staff, partners, and customers. Securing organizational information and the systems that are used to manage and transmit data has become a high profile function. Failure to secure information can have a severe impact on business credibility.
Threats to an organization come in a variety of forms, for example from hacking, viruses, and simple human error. The types of threats change constantly, so management must sponsor, design, and implement business and technical processes to safeguard critical business assets. To create a more secure business environment the organization must:
Assess business exposure and identify which assets to secure
Identify ways to reduce risk to an acceptable level
Design a plan for mitigating security risks
Monitor the efficiency of security mechanisms
Re-evaluate effectiveness and security requirements regularly
All of these activities must be coordinated within a well-defined strategy. An organization can manage risk to an acceptable level by developing security policies and making staff and commercial partners aware of their responsibilities within them. Security can also contribute to an organization’s bottom line, because customers value the reliability of a supplier.
