Security Manual Version 9.2 ReleasedSecurity BYOD

BYOD Access and Use Agreement Electronic Form added and Risk and Vulnerability Assessment updated to include personal devices

Securing a typical business network and IT infrastructure demands an end-to-end approach and a firm grasp of vulnerabilities and associated protective measures. While such knowledge cannot stop all attempts at network incursion or system attack, it can empower IT professionals to eliminate certain general problems, greatly reduce potential damages, and quickly detect breaches. With the ever-increasing number and complexity of attacks, vigilant approaches to security in both large and small enterprises are a must.

Janco's Security Manual for the Internet and Information Technology is over 240 pages in length. All versions of the Security Manual template include both the Business & IT Impact Questionnaire and the Threat & Vulnerability Assessment Tool (both were redesigned to address Sarbanes Oxley compliance). In addition, the Security Manual Template PREMIUM Edition contains 16 detail job descriptions that apply specifically to security and Sarbanes Oxley, ISO security domains, ISO 27000 (ISO27001 and ISO27002), PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and CobiT.

Bring Your Own DeviceIf your enterprise does not have a Bring Your Own Device policy, then two types of things are happening - neither good:

  • Personal devices are being blocked - your company is losing productivity associated with an employee making use of a mobile device or your company is paying for each employees access device..
  • Personal devices are already accessing your corporate network, with or without your knowledge, and you are not doing anything to ensure that this is being done securely and is not in compliance with manadated federal, state, local, and industry requirements.
