2 Copyright © XiSEC, All rights reserved, 2002 Secure Computing Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2002 Ted Humphreys Information Security Management Ensuring business continuity These global objectives of information security management are also stated in ISO/IEC Minimise business damage Maximise return on investments Global Business Objectives

3 Copyright © XiSEC, All rights reserved, 2002 Secure Computing Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2002 Ted Humphreys Information Security Management Achieving the objectives by managing the risk

4 Copyright © XiSEC, All rights reserved, 2002 Secure Computing Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2002 Ted Humphreys Assessing the Risk Risk is the potential that a threat will exploit a vulnerability and cause damage or loss to an asset The assessment includes: –the value of the asset –the level of corresponding vulnerabilities –the likelihood of the relevant threats –existing and planned controls which protect the asset

5 Copyright © XiSEC, All rights reserved, 2002 Secure Computing Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2002 Ted Humphreys Managing the Risks Expenditure on information security needs to be balanced against and appropriate to –The business value of the information and other business assets at risk, and –The business harm/impact likely to result from security failures

6 Copyright © XiSEC, All rights reserved, 2002 Secure Computing Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2002 Ted Humphreys Managing the Risk Risk acceptance Ignoring the risks Risk avoidance Risk transfer Risk reduction

7 Copyright © XiSEC, All rights reserved, 2002 Secure Computing Best Lifetime Achievement Award 2002 Ted Humphreys Managing the Risks with Controls Reduce the vulnerabilities –Reduce/eliminate the weaknesses Reduce the likelihood of occurrence –Reduce/eliminate the cause –Minimise the probability by preventative measures Reduce the consequences of impact –Ensuring effective monitoring –Taking steps to prevent, minimise or contain impact.
