Frameworks

The foundation of our success are built on the frameworks of standards and best practices as outlined by, but not limited to, COBiT, ISO 27000 series and NIST.

Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT) is an IT governance model.  The framework aligns IT processes with business plans and objectives through the definition and measurement.  These are identified thru benchmarks and metrics. Once critical IT controls and processes are identified.  Maturity models are then used to measure and identify the operational and management areas to apply capability improvements in the enterprise business strategies, growth and maturity.

The ISO 27000 series specifies a system that is intended to bring information security to the management level. Organizations can measure their information security program as well as a framework on which to build their information security program. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is the one of the governing bodies for technology measurement and standards in the US. NIST produces many standards and best practices for business and technology.

Using industry recognized frameworks when building and managing security in information management systems, procedures and controls, creates the best foundation to access and reduce risk and control costs.
