Security Program Management

An effective Information Security program provides the underlying structure needed to effectively reduce risk to critical assets and associated security and compliance costs.  A well-defined Information Security program allows organizations to set realistic security goals, allocate resources in an effective and cost-efficient manner, reduce overall risk, and integrate security into daily operations.  A well-managed security program should proactively address a changing threat landscape and communicate management’s security directives to all employees and partners.  To implement an effective security framework, a sound program management plan is essential.
