STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 998 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cyber Security Risk Management improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 998 standard requirements:
There are two philosophical approaches to implementing cyber security on an intelligent, networked grid: create a checklist of actions to take that address known security problems or prioritize actions based on continually refreshing the answer to the question, “What makes my system more secure? Which approach do you take?
What collaborative organizations or efforts has your company interacted with or become involved with to improve its cyber security posture (such as NESCO, NESCOR, Fusion centers, Infragard, US-CERT, ICS-CERT, E-ISAC, SANS, HSIN, the Cross-Sector Cyber Security Working Group of the National Sector Partnership, etc.)?
Not all cyber-connected assets are essential to protect at all cost. Some assets, however, are “crown jewels” – worth protecting at all costs. Other assets may be more like “paperclips” where the expense of protection exceeds the benefit. How do you tell the difference?
Do you support the certified cyber security professional and cyber-informed operations and engineering professionals with advanced problem-solving tools, communities of practice, canonical knowledge bases, and other performance support tools?
What are your organizations current practices that are used to protect proprietary information and customer privacy and personal information. Does the company have an information classification and handling policy?
What domains of knowledge and types of cyber security-associated skills and abilities are necessary for engineers involved in operating the organizations processes to achieve safe and reliable operating goals?
Can you describe your organization's policies and procedures governing risk generally and cyber security risk specifically. How does senior management communicate and oversee these policies and procedures?
Are you aware of anyone attempting to gain information in person, by phone, mail, email, etc., regarding the configuration and/or cyber security posture of your website, network, software, or hardware?
Does your organization provide end-user training to all employees on cyber security, either as part of general staff training or specifically on the topic of computer security and company policy?
When would log files be of limited value, since if a security product is vulnerable to a particular exploit, how will it ever be in a situation where it can log anything, how do you work around this?
