Security Blog Series: Security Controls

October 30, 2017

Peak 10 + ViaWest CISO, Annalea Ilg, developed a security blog series, which covers risk assessment, security controls, security best practices and other topics to help you improve your security posture.

The fifth blog in the series is focused on the importance of maintaining proper security controls. Here’s a quick summary of what’s discussed in “Security Controls: Sexy, No. Important, Yes.”:

  • Security controls help to reduce risk to the environment and allow vulnerabilities to be addressed in a timely manner, reducing an organization’s overall threat profile.
  • The advancement of automation, whether for deployment, maintenance or the ongoing monitoring of security controls, has made maintaining security controls significantly easier.
  • Just a few of the controls covered that your organization should consider in improving your environment and protecting your data:
    1. Patching
    2. Lifecycle Management
    3. Firewalls
    4. Passwords
    5. …and many more
