Security framework and IT security policy

A typical organization’s security framework looks something like the following diagram:

The business strategy, competitive differentiation, and industry regulation guidelines are prominent factors that shape a corporate IT strategy. The security strategy drives the security governance.

Security governance ensures that the company:

  • Enforces the IT security policy through security controls.
  • Educates employees and users about security guidelines.
  • Meets industry and compliance regulations.
  • Achieves operational efficiency across security controls.
  • Continually assesses risks and addresses them through security controls.

The security controls are split across various layers of security, including identity and access management, data, applications, network or server infrastructure, physical security, and security intelligence.

When moving your company to a cloud environment, you need to create a cloud security policy that defines the required security controls for extending the IT security policy onto cloud-based systems.
