Security Policy Management
Information Security Standards
Our information security consulting and policy management services are designed to help businesses meet and exceed industry-standard information security requirements and best practices. Some of the common information security standards we can help your organization comply with include:
ISO/IEC 27001: This is a globally recognized standard for information security management systems that provides a systematic approach to managing sensitive information.
NIST Cybersecurity Framework: This is a framework developed by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology to help organizations manage cybersecurity risk.
PCI DSS: This is a standard developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to protect against payment card fraud.
HIPAA: This is a US healthcare industry standard for the protection of sensitive patient information.
GDPR: This is a European Union regulation that outlines requirements for the protection of personal data.
By working with our information security consultants, your organization can develop and implement policies that align with these standards and help you achieve a higher level of information security.
Best practice Development
To develop and implement effective information security policies, it’s important to follow these best practices:
Clearly define and communicate policies: Policies should be written in plain language and communicated to all employees and stakeholders who interact with sensitive data.
Involve key stakeholders: Involve key stakeholders in the development and review of policies to ensure they align with business objectives.
Regularly review and update policies: Policies should be reviewed and updated regularly to reflect changes in technology, threats, and regulations.
Provide training and awareness: Employees should be trained on policies and given ongoing awareness training to keep them informed of the latest threats and how to respond to them.
Implement a risk management approach: A risk management approach should be used to prioritize policies and ensure that resources are allocated to the most critical areas of risk.
By following these best practices, organizations can develop and implement information security policies that are effective and align with industry standards and regulations.
Conducting a risk assessment is an important step in the development of effective information security policies. The risk assessment process typically involves the following steps:
Identify assets and threats: Identify the assets that require protection and the threats that could impact them.
Assess vulnerabilities: Identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited by threats.
Determine the likelihood and impact of risk: Assess the likelihood and impact of each risk to determine its overall risk level.
Develop risk mitigation strategies: Develop strategies to mitigate identified risks, including policies, procedures, and technical controls.
Implement risk mitigation strategies: Implement the identified risk mitigation strategies and monitor their effectiveness.
By conducting a risk assessment, organizations can prioritize the development and implementation of information security policies and allocate resources to the areas of greatest risk. This approach can help organizations to minimize their risk exposure and better protect their critical assets.
Technical Security Assessments (Network, Database, Applications)
Stealth ICT provides technical security assessments for networks, databases, and applications to identify vulnerabilities and security weaknesses that could be exploited by attackers. These assessments involve using various tools and techniques to simulate attacks and identify security gaps in the systems.
The network security assessment includes evaluating the security of the network infrastructure, including routers, switches, firewalls, and wireless access points. The database security assessment involves identifying vulnerabilities in database configurations, access controls, and data encryption. The application security assessment involves evaluating the security of web applications and mobile apps, including identifying vulnerabilities in code and configurations.
The findings from these assessments are used to develop recommendations to improve the security posture of the organization and mitigate potential risks.
