How would your organization defend itself in a court of law or to regulators in the event of a CyberSecurity incident?
This is a question that many organizations will face due to the increasing likelihood of having a CyberSecurity incident. Unfortunately, it is also a question that many organizations are not prepared to answer with concrete evidence. The best defense they can offer is, “We ask the CyberSecurity folks every month if they are doing a good job, and they say, ‘Yes, we are’.”
Foundational to an effective defense is an overall organized CyberSecurity plan and vision. This provides a CyberSecurity target that the organization is striving to hit. It demonstrates that the organization takes CyberSecurity seriously. Unfortunately, for most organizations CyberSecurity is implemented in an ad-hoc manner without an overall process and vision. The good news is that the NIST CyberSecurity Framework and other international standards enable organizations to have an overall organized CyberSecurity plan and vision.
A second foundational element to an effective defense is concrete and detailed metrics that demonstrate that the organization did its best to implement their CyberSecurity plan and vision. Unfortunately, many organizations lack these concrete and detailed metrics on their CyberSecurity performance. The best they can present is surveys of opinions on how well the organization is doing CyberSecurity.
ClearArmor’s CyberSecurity Resource Planning™ (CSRP™) provides both of these foundational elements. It enables organizations to implement the NIST Framework resulting in an overall organized CyberSecurity plan and vision based on state of the art technology contained in ClearArmor’s Intelligent CyberSecurity Platform™ (ICSP™). ClearArmor’s Momentum Methodology™ (M2) provides detailed guidance for the implementation of the NIST Framework. M2 guides the organization in defining the metrics necessary for an effective defense in the event of a CyberSecurity incident. ICSP gathers, aggregates, analyzes, and presents those metrics.
