IT Risk Management Services
Eagle’s Security Risk Management support services assist clients after delivery of security risk assessment. An effective security risk assessment can include a handful of major risks and ten, twenty or more minor risks, along with dozens of recommendations to treat these risks. The risk management process is ongoing and never ending. This can be overwehlming, and most organizations conduct risk management using an informal process at best.
Certain regulatory frameworks, such as the HIPAA regulations, mandate that organizations implement a formal risk management process. Through this process, organizations must “implement security measures sufficient to reduce risks and vulnerabilities to a reasonable and appropriate level to comply with the HIPAA Security Rule.” The regulation further mandates that formal documentation of the risk management process be maintained.
Eagle support services will help the organization mature and formalize its risk management process. Eagle guides CISOs and other security officials with an effective process to ensure that the proper management staff are involved, and that risk acceptance decisions be made at the appropriate level, and that proper documentation of these decisions is maintained. In addition, Eagle can help prioritize what could be a myriad of corrective action recommendations, such as:
- Implementing encryption of mobile devices, workstations and databases
- Selecting and implementing a secure email solution
- Updating custom applications to include appropriate access controls and audit trails
- Auditing vendors and contractors
- Creating an internal audit program to monitor employee use of electronic record software
- Conducting a technical vulnerability analysis and/or penetration test of the computer network
- Updating formal security policies
- Implementing an effective employee training program, including initial training and ongoing security awareness training
- Upgrading the system backup and conducting recovery testing
- Implementing a System Information and Event Monitoring System and/or audit log monitoring system
- Implementing a mobile device management system
For organizations who take compliance seriously, the list of projects can be overwhelming. Simply achieving basic compliance often requires a multi-year effort. Eagle provides Risk Management support, including both project management and/or project support for any of the above projects.
We work with your team to create a project plan that prioritizes projects based on overall security risk reduction. Next, we regularly meet with both management and appropriate staff members to implement the plan.
