Value Drivers

  • Corporate security technology protected
  • Reliable information secured
  • Corporate assets protected
  Risk Drivers
  • Exposure of information
  • Breach of trust with other organisations
  • Violations of legal and regulatory requirements

View Control Practices  help

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Ensure that all hardware, software and facilities related to the security function and controls, e.g., security tokens and encryptors, are tamperproof.
  2. Secure security documentation and specifications to prevent unauthorised access. However, do not make security of systems reliant solely on secrecy of security specifications.
  3. Make the security design of dedicated security technology (e.g., encryption algorithms) strong enough to resist exposure, even if the security design is made available to unauthorised individuals.
  4. Evaluate the protection mechanisms on a regular basis (at least annually) and perform updates to the protection of the security technology, if necessary.
