(Application || Business Process || Service) Security = Process Security = Vulcan
The conventional view of security is primarily aimed at securing an organization’s assets, including facilities, goods, IT-infrastructure and information silos from the solitary intruders entering organizations network and facilities and creating minor damage. Current security products mirror only the conventional security needs.
However, the characteristics of the threat environment organizations are exposed have changed, whereas now, these attacks originate from highly organized groups and are aimed at obtaining services or money by disrupting or diverting the victim’s normal business operations.
To achieve this, the diversity and sophistication of their means and methodologies has increased drastically from purely IT-based to social engineering, planting a mole or having their own communication device plugged into the network. Damages for victim organizations can run into millions/billions of dollars or more and managers could be held legally accountable.
In order to effectively counter this threat, organizations must focus on securing and assuring their business processes or value chains, since they are most critical to the organization and its continuity of operations.
A process is a set of logically interrelated tasks, intended to generate an output, beneficial to the organization. A process aims to create higher-value output from lower-value input, at a cost that is lower than the increase in value of the generated product.
Processes, by nature, consist of a number of tasks performed by different individuals, usually within different departments, making them vulnerable to mistakes, misunderstandings, miscommunications, and abuse.
Decision-Zone markets an agile and robust process security software application for validating/tracking all lower input chains using the interconnection logic to secure and assure that the higher output value chain is created.
Protect What is Really Valuable – Implement Process Security
In many organizations nowadays, the security approach is siloed: IT-security is managed and maintained at an IT-level, physical security is managed and maintained at facilities level, etc. resulting in the processes, as most valuable assets of an organization to be overlooked. What’s missing is the holistic view on security, putting the security of the process, which is directly connected to the business goals of an organization, at the center and resulting in an overall organizational embedding of security in all of its components. Decision-Zone has created a new holistic security management model, next generation process centric software tools and implementation methodology, helping organizations to realign security with their business goals.
Social engineering is a collection of techniques used to manipulate people into performing actions or divulging confidential information they should not perform/divulge.
