  2. The cloud is often much more secure and reliable than other IT operations. If you think cloud could solve some of your IT challenges, would you be willing to explore how you can deliver IT securely?

  3. What role(s) do or should national/international standards and organizations that develop national/international standards play in critical infrastructure cybersecurity conformity assessment?

  4. If your organization is required to report to more than one regulatory body, what information does your organization report and what has been your organizations reporting experience?

  5. How will IT operations monitor the end-to-end environment to detect, isolate and fix services problems, including composite applications that have service-toservice dependencies?

  6. It operations management have been asked by a customer to carry out a non-standard activity, that will cause them to miss an agreed service level target. how should they respond?

  7. What are the current regulatory and regulatory reporting requirements in the United States (e.g., local, state, national, and other) for organizations relating to cybersecurity?

  8. Do you consider legacy alternatives (analog systems, manual mode, or conservative operations) to provide redundancy to systems with cyber vulnerabilities?

  9. We Initiate corrective action, which could be automated (e.g. reboot a device remotely or run a script), or manual (e.g. notify operations staff of the status)

  10. How will IT operations ensure that the environment has the flexibility to adapt and track changes if trending shows that the environment is in trouble?

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.
