Effectively managing information security, privacy, and compliance risk is complex and ever-changing. There are many components and considerations in developing and implementing a robust program that encompasses and integrates all the elements needed to manage this risk and achieve one’s compliance objectives effectively. Many organizations believe selecting their control framework is the most complicated part of the process, and although important, it is just the beginning.
In developing an information security risk and compliance program, there are many considerations in addition to selecting the most appropriate framework, such as:
- Measuring the effectiveness of implementation
- Aligning threats to security controls
- Reporting your program’s approach to management and third parties
- Inheriting controls and responsibilities with service providers
- Integrating information risk and compliance controls into an assessment tool
- Aligning with your third-party risk management approach
