The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Enterprise Network Firewall specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the Enterprise Network Firewall 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 977 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Enterprise Network Firewall improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 977 standard requirements:
- Ids/ips traffic pattern analysis can often detect or block attacks such as a denial-of-service attack or a network scan. However, in some cases this is legitimate traffic (such as using cloud infrastructure for load testing or security testing). Does the cloud provider have a documented exception process for allowing legitimate traffic that the ids/ips flags as an attack pattern?
- Do you make sure to ask about your vendors customer satisfaction rating and references in your particular industry. If the vendor does not know its own rating, it may be a red flag that you are dealing with a company that does not put Customer Service at the forefront. How would a company know what to improve if it had no idea what areas customers felt were lacking?
- 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?
- The increasingly mobile work force makes compliance more difficult. With more endpoints, devices and people involved, there is that much more to watch. There are devices not owned by the organization pulling data off the organizations network. Is your organizations policy consistent with that of contractors you work with?
- Do you analyze the cyber security of the system thoroughly according to the needs of the organization, regulatory guides and related policy recommendations detail the defined goal and the process to obtain cyber security; is the system adequate to fulfill the cyber security requirement?
- Many people make statements along the lines of those IT folks prevent us from doing your jobs. They specifically cite that security departments implement policy and controls without regard for business function. Does this sound familiar to you and how do you manage this?
- Cyber attacks are expected to reach unprecedented capability and distribution in the coming years. As cyber weapons become more complex, and deliberate attacks more frequent, how are your security teams taking action now to prevent future victimization?
- 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?
- Does your organization require security monitoring services that provide enterprise wide log retention and real-time security monitoring of network devices, applications, and endpoint protection solutions?
- 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?
