Security is too important to be left in the hands of just one department or employee-it's a concern of an entire enterprise. Enterprise Security Architecture shows that having a comprehensive plan requires more than the purchase of security software-it requires a framework for developing and maintaining a system that is proactive.

Book Short Summary:

Is security management changing so fast that you can’t keep up? Perhaps it seems like those traditional “best practices” in security no longer work? One answer might be that you need better best practices! In their new book, The Manager’s Guide to Enterprise Security Risk Management: Essentials of Risk-Based Security, two experienced professionals introduce ESRM. Their practical, organization-wide, integrated approach redefines the securing of an organization’s people and assets from being task-based to being risk-based. In their careers, the authors, Brian Allen and Rachelle Loyear, have been instrumental in successfully reorganizing the way security is handled in major corporations. In this ground-breaking book, the authors begin by defining Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM): “Enterprise security risk management is the application of fundamental risk principles to manage all security risks − whether information, cyber, physical security, asset management, or business continuity − in a comprehensive, holistic, all-encompassing approach.” In the face of a continually evolving and increasingly risky global security landscape, this book takes you through the steps of putting ESRM into practice enterprise-wide, and helps you to: Differentiate between traditional, task-based management and strategic, risk-based management. See how adopting ESRM can lead to a more successful security program overall and enhance your own career. . Prepare your security organization to adopt an ESRM methodology. . Analyze and communicate risks and their root causes to all appropriate parties. . Identify what elements are necessary for long-term success of your ESRM program. . Ensure the proper governance of the security function in your enterprise. . Explain the value of security and ESRM to executives using useful metrics and reports. . Throughout the book, the authors provide a wealth of real-world case studies from a wide range of businesses and industries to help you overcome any blocks to acceptance as you design and roll out a new ESRM-based security program for your own workplace.

Book Short Summary:

Security is a major consideration in the way that business and information technology systems are designed, built, operated, and managed. The need to be able to integrate security into those systems and the discussions with business functions and operations exists more than ever. This IBM® Redbooks® publication explores concerns that characterize security requirements of, and threats to, business and information technology (IT) systems. This book identifies many business drivers that illustrate these concerns, including managing risk and cost, and compliance to business policies and external regulations. This book shows how these drivers can be translated into capabilities and security needs that can be represented in frameworks, such as the IBM Security Blueprint, to better enable enterprise security. To help organizations with their security challenges, IBM created a bridge to address the communication gap between the business and technical perspectives of security to enable simplification of thought and process. The IBM Security Framework can help you translate the business view, and the IBM Security Blueprint describes the technology landscape view. Together, they can help bring together the experiences that we gained from working with many clients to build a comprehensive view of security capabilities and needs. This book is intended to be a valuable resource for business leaders, security officers, and consultants who want to understand and implement enterprise security by considering a set of core security capabilities and services.

Book Short Summary:

In today’s competitive marketplace with its focus on profit, maintaining integrity can often be a challenge. Further complicating this challenge is the fact that those assigned to the task of assuring accountability within an organization often have little, if any, visibility into the inner workings of that organization. Oracle Identity Management: Governance, Risk, and Compliance Architecture is the definitive guide for corporate stewards who are struggling with the challenge of meeting regulatory compliance pressures while embarking on the path of process and system remediation. The text is written by Marlin Pohlman, a director with Oracle who is recognized as one of the primary educators worldwide on identity management, regulatory compliance, and corporate governance. In the book’s first chapters, Dr. Pohlman examines multinational regulations and delves into the nature of governance, risk, and compliance. He also cites common standards, illustrating a number of well-known compliance frameworks. He then focuses on specific software components that will enable secure business operations.

Examining case studies from the five most regulated business verticals, financial services, retail, pharma-life sciences, higher education, and the US public sector, this work teaches corporation stewards how to: Attain and maintain high levels of integrity Eliminate redundancy and excessive expense in identity management Map solutions directly to region and legislation Hold providers accountable for contracted services Identity management is the first line of defense in the corporate internal ecosystem. Reconcilingtheory and practicality, this volume makes sure that defense is workable, responsive, and effective.
