Information security management relates to the preservation of information and it’s adjacent IT infrastructure assets against the risks of confidentiality, integrity, availability or reputiation loss. Security Management applies and verifies the controls that an organization should have in place to safeguard its assets any potential threats and help potential stakeholders manage any risks that could arise.
The objective of proper security management is to examine the flow of IT systems. By performing vulnerability management and reviewing internal procedures, a professional and wise security management audit service uncovers security flaws and identifies never-before-addressed risks that could affect your business if they are not properly classified and mitigated.
SwissClass Trade Security Management Services are scaled in order to meet the specific needs of your business. While security is fundamentally based on people and processes, there are a number of solutions to consider when testing security policies of your assets. At a high level, these solutions include:
Risk assessments are a methodical process for identifying, evaluating and mitigating events that could affect your business objectives in a negative way. By identifying such events in your external or internal environments and establishing whether or not these events intersect with the achievement of your objectives in pessimistic manner the events become risks. Therefore we can define a risk as an likelihood that an event can occur and affect the achievement of your business objectives.
Many organizations conduct risk assessments for years and still find it demanding to extract the real value of a risk. The link between shareholder value, key business objectives and risk assessments is sometimes lost. Risk assessments are also mandated by regulatory demands (for example Sarbanes-Oxley) and require a formalized process with emphasis on monitoring, business processes, operational IT procedures and internal control over the incident reporting process. Risk assessments are also powered by an internals organization’s own goals to focus on business development, or operational efficiency. The scope or mandate of risk assessments is to bring together the right parties to identify events that could incapacitate an organization’s ability to reach its objectives, classify these risks and determine proper mitigation techniques.
Risk management is the process of identifying vulnerabilities and threats for the information resources used by an organization in achieving business objectives, and deciding what countermeasures, if any, to take in reducing risk to an acceptable level, based on the value of the information resource of the organization.
SwissClass Trade uses fresh approach for vulnerability assessment, based on risk analysis with dedicated remediation planning in order to resolve all the critical, high or medium issues.
We remove the interruption of long scan cycles that are correlated with active vulnerability scanners. Then we come with an innovative way that uses both risk analysis and interactive vulnerability assessment and management to generate an efficient and proactive process without affecting every asset of your infrastructure. We analyze the data gathered by the analysis and apply human intelligence to eliminate false positives that can affect your business or server uptime. This way, you only have to mitigate the critical vulnerabilities identified with minimum business disruption.
Our vulnerability management process includes context-aware human intelligence analysis to find vulnerability hot spots and map them to business units or process. SwissClass Trade identifies attack vectors, taking into account all possible assets access paths. Moreover, it provides security controls such as firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems as well as non-technical control that can mitigate the vulnerabilities.
The role of the Security Audit can be compared with any audit that covers analysis and evaluation of automated information systems, related to non-automated processes and the integration among them.
The groundwork of a Security Audit calls for two major steps. The first step is to plan the Security Audit and congregate as much information as possible while the second step focuses more on grasping the existing internal control structure.
Nowadays, organizations move to a risk-based audit that tackles and assesses risk in order to help an IT Security auditor to make resolutions as to whether perform compliance checks or substantive testing.
Using a risk-based approach, IT Security auditors are relying on operational and internal controls as well as the knowledge of the company and its business flow. This approach can help you identify and relate to the cost-benefit analysis and get a better grasp and control of the known risk.
The techniques used for the identification and assessment of vulnerabilities is based on the best practices in the field, at international level, including but not limited to: ISO/IEC 31010:2009 – Risk Management – Risk Assessment Techniques , ISO Guide 73:2009 – Risk Management – Vocabulary, NIST SP 800-115.
