STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 926 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which IT Security improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 926 standard requirements:
- Have the it security cost for the any investment/project been integrated in to the overall cost including (c&a/re-accreditation, system security plan, risk assessment, privacy impact assessment, configuration/patch management, security control testing and evaluation, and contingency planning/testing)?
- Can the system protect against unauthorized access by use of an image versus presentation of an actual biometric object (i.e., presentation of a picture of an iris/retina versus presentation of the actual eye)?
- If the firewall runs on an individual host for which all users are not trusted system administrators, how vulnerable is it to tampering by a user logged into the operating system running on the protected hosts?
- Does your department or organizational unit manage or support computing resources (data bases, hardware, web pages, etc.) that are used by people that access those resources from outside your department?
- Does the IT Security system require end-users to configure and maintain security policies, security professionals to individually manage policies per host, or is the configuration centrally managed?
- What is the impact on the training and level of effort needed to identify and define roles, the organizational impact of implementing roles, and the responsibility for role maintenance?
- Can people access the computing equipment used by your department or organizational unit through the internet, through dial-up access, or from network devices outside your department?
- What is the budget for acquisition and life cycle support of intrusion detection hardware, software, and infrastructure, including staffing to monitor and respond to intrusions?
- What is the requirement for support of component-level redundancy (with hot switchover to backup in case of failure) and scalability to accommodate growing enterprise/user base?
- Can the access control product protect individual devices (e.g., floppy disks, compact disks;read-only memory CD-ROM, serial and parallel interfaces, and system clipboard)?
