Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical Encryption Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any Encryption related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Encryption specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Encryption Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Encryption improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:

  1. If employees, administrators, or third parties access the network remotely, is remote access software (such as pcanywhere, dial-in, or vpn) configured with a unique username and password and with encryption and other security features turned on?

  2. An extra consideration when using cloud services concerns the handling of encryption keys - where are the keys stored and how are they made available to application code that needs to decrypt the data for processing?

  3. Are industry best practices used to implement strong encryption for authentication and transmission for wireless networks transmitting cardholder data or connected to the cardholder data environment?

  4. The expectations for validation of work over the internet are fairly clear, but encryption is not. since encryption actually transforms the data, how is this expected to be validated?

  5. 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?

  6. Can communication-level security techniques (for example, SSL encryption or certificate authentication) be used to secure individual interactions within a trust model?

  7. Encryption: Several laws and regulations require that certain types of PII should be stored only when encrypted. Is this requirement supported by the CSP?

  8. Use of software SSL does require precious CPU resources, how does performance of SSL via hardware encryption compare to no encryption or hardware encryption?

  9. Another confidentiality consideration for encryption is key management. How are the encryption keys that are used going to be managed and by whom?

  10. Are encryption keys changed from default at installation, and changed anytime anyone with knowledge of the keys leaves the company or changes positions?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Encryption book in PDF containing requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

Your Encryption self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:

  • The Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard; with the Encryption Self-Assessment and Scorecard you will develop a clear picture of which Encryption areas need attention, which requirements you should focus on and who will be responsible for them:

    • Shows your organization instant insight in areas for improvement: Auto generates reports, radar chart for maturity assessment, insights per process and participant and bespoke, ready to use, RACI Matrix
    • Gives you a professional Dashboard to guide and perform a thorough Encryption Self-Assessment
    • Is secure: Ensures offline data protection of your Self-Assessment results
    • Dynamically prioritized projects-ready RACI Matrix shows your organization exactly what to do next:

 

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Encryption projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Encryption Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Encryption project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Scope Management Plan: During what part of the PM process is the Encryption project scope statement created?

  2. Change Request: Can you answer what happened, who did it, when did it happen, and what else will be affected?

  3. Team Operating Agreement: How do you want to be thought of and known within the organization?

  4. Schedule Management Plan: Does the IMS include all contract and/or designated management control milestones?

  5. Project Management Plan: Is the engineering content at a feasibility level-of-detail, and is it sufficiently complete, to provide an adequate basis for the baseline cost estimate?

  6. Risk Management Plan: Does the Encryption project team have experience with the technology to be implemented?

  7. Schedule Management Plan: Are the primary and secondary schedule tools defined?

  8. Change Request: Has a formal technical review been conducted to assess technical correctness?

  9. Probability and Impact Assessment: Who are the international/overseas Encryption project partners (equipment supplier/supplier/consultant/contractor) for this Encryption project?

  10. Process Improvement Plan: What Actions Are Needed to Address the Problems and Achieve the Goals?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Encryption project with this in-depth Encryption Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Encryption projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Encryption and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Encryption investments work better.

This Encryption All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.

    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).

    Standard Requirements is a straightforward guide. It is a tool to help develop a detailed vision of all areas impacted by an implementation, and a useful tool for scoring readiness and implementation quality.
