6 ITIL & SecurityITIL (v2) based: - “The ITIL-process Security Management describes the structured fitting of information security in the management organization. ITIL Security Management is based on the code of practice for information security management now known as ISO/IEC A basic goal of Security Management is to ensure adequate information security. The primary goal of information security, in turn, is to protect information assets against risks, and thus to maintain their value to the organization. This is commonly expressed in terms of ensuring their confidentiality, integrity and availability, along with related properties or goals such as authenticity, accountability, non-repudiation and reliability.” [There is] Mounting pressure for many organizations to structure their Information Security Management Systems in accordance with ISO/IEC this requires revision of the ITIL v2 Security Management volume, and indeed a v3 release is in the works.

19 Complete Information Security Establishing and identifying Compliance Controls: The Service Integrator and Manager PerspectiveThere must be an overarching information security framework:The lack of such a framework, aligned with strategic business objectives, leads to a disjoint in delivery priorities, & the possibility for over-developed or inappropriate security controlFor Government Departments, in addition to ensuring compliance with HMG security requirements, adoption of such a framework:improves engagement with both IT & non-IT supplier organisations, who generally state compliance or certification against ISO27001 & who therefore understand the requirements of it,simplifies future development & implementation of delivery solutions & services through effective, pragmatic security risk management,enables the updating of security policy & guidance in response to changing threats and business needs,improves communication with those responsible for implementing security controls more efficiently.Heading - Calibri - 28pt - no bold - BlueSub Heading - Calibri - 22pt - no bold - RedBody Text - Calibri - 18pt - no bold - BlueCatchline - Calibri - 20pt - Italics - no bold - BlueComplete Information Security19

21 Risk Management & Audit Regularly and formally review Risk Management processes and procedures ensuring holistic approach across organisation.Implement or aim for a consistent approach across all suppliers.Ensure that Risk Management is seen as a basis for all decisions by including reference in meetings and forums and workshops,Tie Audits into the Risk Management processEnsure that risks are articulated in simple but specific language and at not too high a level & that the risk is real – and the mitigation is proportionate and effective!Why did the chicken cross the road? It was trying to get a signal on its iPhone 4.

24 Accreditation Aftercare Monitor accreditation activity and Accreditation after care, ensuring systems are used within the Accreditation scope, and that changes are notified where appropriate. (Problem Management?)In particular assurance that the Accreditations for infrastructure services are up to date and that all necessary activities are under control. (Service Level Management).Identify DWP information systems (Configuration Management?) and ensure Accreditation procedures are adhered to.

25 Persistent Internal Challenges and Opportunities Need to identify and maintain relationship with business IT Security Stakeholders(Single Points of Contact)Diverse business scenarios within large organisations (one size may not fit all):Multiple locations,Differing operating models,Inconsistency in IT Security ExpertiseAccountabilities unclear.Internal Identity and Access Management - Local Installer Rights and Privilege users detracting from ‘defence in depth’ strategy:End User ComputingDefinition!Demands for local or flexible storage of data,Use of unapproved tools and techniques and inappropriate developments,Lack of expertise in using standard tools,Introduction of unauthorised software,Introduction of unauthorised devices,Use of ‘ready to go’ Internet services.User Awareness: -Phishing Attacks,Spam,Social EngineeringDrive to provide access to Social NetworkingMy mate Sid was a victim of ID theft - He's just called ‘S’ now.
26 Persistent Supply Chain Challenges and Opportunities Privilege users in the supplier community: -Local,Off ShoreRemote AccessProvisioning and De-provisioning (Identity and Access Management),Flexibility and Agility versus control and stability,Economic climate – continuity of supply,Evidencing Independence,Commercials and integrating compliance,Suppliers collaboration (or lack of it),Patching and maintenance against availability and risk,Enforcing standard Change Control,“It’s all about the contract!Just found an absolute bargain on EBay - Some bloke in Nigeria is selling army dog tags inscribed with your name, national insurance number, bank account and sort code details free of charge. Get in there quick!
27 Successes and Advantages Access to Thought Leadership, Innovation and Industry Research,Ability to resource fluctuations in demand (e.g. Accreditation & related activities)Ability to identify cross-supplier trends and issues (IAM for example)Application of Industry Standards and techniques (Patch Management),Ability to manage large amounts of security compliance information from across suppliers operational processes and technology, and drive cost effective continuous improvement (e.g. roadmap, incident management processes)Independent, integrated view of operational security riskFixed price service measured via SLAs – driven down security resourcing costs2727
28 Key MessagesRecognise that suppliers are in existence to make a profit and, therefore, ensure that you (and your supplier) understand what your priorities are and who is accountable, - does your desire to protect your business align with the suppliers business plan?Continually stress and demonstrate by actions and deeds that, where you have outsourced the management of suppliers, the ‘integrator’ is your agent and is acting on your behalf – they must be afforded the same access and cooperation as you yourself,Collaborate with your supplier in establishing and refining process definitions with clear ‘hand off’ points,Understand the end to end supply chain to flush out any ‘unexpected’ and potentially unpalatable elements (such as off shore activity),Ensure communications are consistent across all suppliers - and this is another opportunity to emphasise the support for your supplier,Ensure that security clauses in IT contracts mandate your suppliers to cooperate with your integrator,Where possible, ensure consistent methodologies for risk management, patching, etc,Ensure Availability and up time promises to the organisation are consistent with the need for essential (including unanticipated) system maintenance,Bake in compliance activity as well as technical security measures when developing systems.Don’t panic or set hares running – things are not always as bad as they first appear – but, you can soon make them that bad (or worse) through inappropriate responses!I got a second this morning from a Nigerian bank offering me £10m if I give him my bank details. What luck! I'm going to be back in credit after the first one wiped me out!
