Security Program Management & Cybersecurity Strategy

Cybersecurity Management has become a core business function in an increasingly digitalized world.

WHAT IS SECURITY PROGRAM MANAGMENT?

Security program management is a critical component of an organization’s cybersecurity strategy, where organizations develop and maintain processes and controls to protect critical assets adequately. This may include data classification, risk management, threat detection, and incident response.

"Good security is more than a combination of technologies and services; Online’s experts can help you architect a scalable, risk-appropriate, and effective program."

Steve Levinson, Vice-President, RSP, Online Business Systems

SECURITY PROGRAM MANAGEMENT WITH ONLINE

Our seasoned practitioners work with clients to set the foundation for a right-sized security program by establishing the mission, goals, technologies, and processes to maintain and improve the program. All this is done to ensure that the security program is aligned with the organization’s strategic business objectives in an ever-changing risk landscape. 

OUR APROACH

When building out a security program with our clients, Online takes a three-step approach.

In Step 1, we identify the key people, technologies, and processes to protect your critical assets. Online experts then perform an assessment that may look at asset and data inventories, dataflows, architecture diagrams, etc., while considering legal, regulatory and contractual requirements. 

A comprehensive risk assessment occurs in Step 2, resulting in a remediation roadmap and/or a formal risk register. To build or improve the security program, Online will work with our clients to prioritize the remediation activities, considering risk, perceived level of effort to remediate, costs, resource availability and timelines. 

Optionally, Online may provide remediation activities such as security policy development, incident response planning, vulnerability management, security awareness training, third-party risk management and security event monitoring guidance.

A well-chosen security framework and controls can provide your organization with a road map to success. Yes, you can go Left, Right, or Straight with your decision, but consulting an expert can help you get there more directly and safely.

Medical records created and maintained by health care organizations must remain confidential, accurate, and accessible. However, many organizations don't have the internal capabilities to comply with these regulations and cannot afford to hire experts in these fields. In such a case, a virtual Chief Information Security Officer, or vCISO, can be beneficial.
