SAN FRANCISCO, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cybersecurity risk-management is not only vitally important to individuals, businesses, and governments around the globe—it's very tough to get right. That's why Gary Hayslip, the CISO for the city of San Diego, put together a resource that's chock full of tips on how information security professionals can foster a healthy ecosystem at their own enterprises: an ecosystem that balances cybersecurity and risk-management in a way that keeps enterprises not only safe, but effective.
As part of its mission to help information security professionals succeed, Peerlyst (https://www.peerlyst.com) has published Hayslip's six-part plan, complete with mind maps, in a piece entitled "Resource: Cybersecurity and Risk Management."
Those steps are:
- Categorize information systems and data
- Select security controls
- Implement security controls
- Continually assess security controls
- Authorize (verify risk baseline)
- Continually monitor security controls
As Hayslip writes, "In truth, an organization's cybersecurity program and life cycle are part of a larger ecosystem. This security ecosystem includes the cybersecurity life cycle, the risk-management life cycle, and the dynamic interaction between their components and processes. This unique ecosystem, when documented and properly maintained, provides an organization with invaluable data on the maturity of its cybersecurity and risk-management programs."
