Corporate Information Security Strategies in today’s environment should be as flexible as possible, while maintaining effective security controls to protect your organisation. This strategy, along with your Corporate Information Security Policy, should provide the direction to develop a security framework that will allow the addition of new technologies within your environment to support new e-commerce initiatives.
eSecure understand that the development of, or changes to, any strategy requires key stakeholder support, and possibly require board level sign-off. Many organisations utilise identified risks, external audits, regulatory compliance or governance to get the necessary buy-in from executive management, and our consultants can assist you in developing the proposals for new strategy initiatives.
In the development of a successful security strategy, business requirements, security policies, and other departmental strategies are required. Based on our experience, we have identified the following key considerations for the development and implementation of a successful security strategy:
- Early communication of the Security Strategy, engaging senior executives from various departments within your
- Ensure the strategy supports audit, compliance, regulatory and governance requirements
- Awareness of new trends and technologies
- Understand emerging threats
- Ensure strategy supports your organisation’s risk profile
- Strategy should drive the development of a flexible security framework.
We can work with you to develop a comprehensive Information Security strategy that balances the people, processes and technology to introduce a secure, flexible security framework that will reduce risk and improve both operational efficiencies and manageability of your corporate IT environment. Following the strategy, we can assist in developing a roadmap that will define the action plan required for the implementation of your security strategy, defining the organisational structure (roles and responsibilities), strategic project initiatives, detailed project plans and timelines and project inter-dependencies to effectively manage the transition with minimal impact on normal business operations.
