Benefits of a Risk-based Integrated Approach
• When utilizing a risk based, integrated approach the
organization can:
— Transfer risks to third parties or purchase insurance
— Control risk through the implementation of security controls
— Monitor risks that the organization chooses to accept
— Make the right security investments to address the most critical assets
within the organization
— Ensure effectiveness of the most critical element of security---people
— Address regulatory compliance efficiently and cost-effectively

Integrated with the Organization
• Information security is not just a “technology” issue
• Human elements and processes are also essential:
— People: The #1 cause of security breaches. People issues include:
policies & procedures, technology management, security
awareness, incident response, security organization
— Process: How work is conducted has a huge impact on how security
should be designed and deployed--it balances productivity with
security
— Technology: Focus has traditionally been on external threats and
perimeter security technology e.g. firewalls, intrusion monitoring,
network security, etc. Technology can also help with internal
issues as well e.g. Role Based Access Control
Definition: Role Based Access Control (RBAC)
A method of regulating access to computer or network
resources based on the roles of individual users within an
enterprise. By definition RBAC incorporates elements of
People, Processes and Technologies
