STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 824 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Managed Security Service Provider improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 824 standard requirements:
- Certainly the increasingly mobile work force makes compliance more difficult. With more endpoints, devices and people involved, there is that much more to watch. There are devices not owned by the organization pulling data off the organizations network. Is your organizations policy consistent with that of contractors you work with?
- Follow-up: Follow-up should include regular status reporting, describing new controls and lessons learned to improve future performance. The most important element of the follow-up stage is performing a postmortem analysis of the response procedure itself. Exactly what happened and at what times?
- For HIPAA, GLBA and/or other state or federal regulation compliance, what due diligence/auditing is performed to ensure that you remain in compliance and what individual(s) in your organization are responsible for said compliance?
- Do you have written clearance procedures in place regarding use, licensing, and consent agreements for third party content used by you in your products or services and on your website or in your promotional materials?
- Policy compliance is closely related to IT governance. Compliance has much to do with defining, controlling and governing security efforts. How should an organization respond to security events?
- Do you have contracts in place with the 3rd parties that require the vendor to maintain controls, practices and procedures that are as protective as your own internal procedures?
- Do you monitor security alerts and advisories from your system vendors, Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) and other sources, taking appropriate and responsive actions?
- During the last 3 years, have you experienced a disruption to your computer system that lasted longer than 4 hours for any reason (other than planned downtime)?
- Encryption helps to secure data that may be stored on a stolen laptop but what about the sensitive data that is sent via e-mail or downloaded to a USB device?
- During the last 3 years, have you been the subject of an investigation or action by any regulatory or administrative agency for privacy related violations?
