Top 10 Reputation Management Rules
Top 10 Reputation Management Rules are defined in detail in Janco’s Security Manual Template.
Without constant vigilance, your company is vulnerable to attack. The first step to take is to assess your current security stance, then make a plan to increase security with proper best practices and technologies.
Top ten commandments of security management for CSOs, CIOs, and IT Managers
- Limit access to information to those who need to have it. People can’t misuse information that they don’t have.
- Conduct frequent and deep security audits. Identify who has access to what – and how their actions could weaken the protection of valuable data/information.
- Set limits to information access. Do not exclude all information from access – data exclusion locks down access. Limits set authorizations so specific people can do specific things under specific circumstances.
- Limit administrative rights to as few individuals as possible. Very few individuals need them to do their jobs.
- Ignore organizational hierarchy when setting access capabilities. Access and authorization should be based upon responsibilities, not position.
- Make Security Invisible. Minimize extra commands, screens, pop-ups for employees; if an action is allowed, just let it happen.
- Analyze Security End back doors. Compliance logs reveal threat patterns, and show how security steps are hurting productivity.
- Monitor information access and updates. User-initiated application information updates can invite vulnerabilities.
- Educate everyone on security policies and procedures. The more that people know about the rules the better
- Make security best practices the watch word for everyone. IT and the general workforce must address the constantly changing nature of security breaches.
