Examples; 10 of the 906 standard requirements:

  1. Follow-up of an incident should include regular status reporting, describing new controls and lessons learned to improve future performance. The most important element of the follow-up stage is performing a postmortem analysis of the response procedure itself. Exactly what happened and at what times? How is this process managed?

  2. Have the it security cost for all investments/projects been integrated in to the overall cost including (certification and accreditation/re-accreditation, system security plan, risk assessment, privacy impact assessment, configuration/patch management, security control testing and evaluation, and contingency planning/testing)?

  3. 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?

  4. 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?

  5. Does your organization have an effective process in place to report the security status of the information system and its environment of operation to the authorizing officials and other designated senior leaders within the organization on an ongoing basis?

  6. Does your organization take the necessary remediation actions to address the most important weaknesses and deficiencies in the information system and its environment of operation based on the findings and recommendations in security assessment reports?

  7. As a csp undertakes to build out or take a fresh look at its service offerings, the csp should clearly define its business strategy and related risk management philosophy. what market segments or industries does the csp intend to serve?

  8. For hipaa, glba and/or other state or federal regulation compliance, what due diligence/auditing is performed to ensure that you remain in compliance and what individual(s) in your organization are responsible for said compliance?

  9. Is the organization effectively monitoring changes to the information system and its environment of operation including the effectiveness of deployed security controls in accordance with the continuous monitoring strategy?

  10. Did the organization update appropriate security plans based on the findings and recommendations in the security assessment report and any subsequent changes to the information system and its environment of operation?
