Security Testing, Surveillance and Monitoring

Test and monitor the IT security implementation in a proactive way. IT security should be reaccredited in a timely manner to ensure that the approved enterprise’s information security baseline is maintained. A logging and monitoring function will enable the early prevention and/or detection and subsequent timely reporting of unusual and/or abnormal activities that may need to be addressed.

Value Drivers

  • Staff experienced in security testing and monitoring of IT systems
  • Regularly reviewed security level
  • Deviations from business requirements highlighted
  • Security breaches detected proactively

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Implement monitoring, testing, reviews and other controls to:
    • Promptly prevent/detect errors in the results of processing
    • Promptly identify attempted, successful and unsuccessful security breaches and incidents
    • Detect security events and thereby prevent security incidents by using detection and prevention technologies
    • Determine whether the actions taken to resolve a breach of security are effective
  2. Conduct effective and efficient security testing procedures at regular intervals to:
    • Verify that identity management procedures are effective
    • Verify that user account management is effective
    • Validate that security-relevant system parameter settings are defined correctly and are in compliance with the information security baseline
    • Validate that network security controls/settings are configured properly and are in compliance with the information security baseline
    • Validate that security monitoring procedures are working properly
    • Consider, where necessary, obtaining expert reviews of the security perimeter
