Security management

Security management involves the use of security countermeasures for the protection of assets. Threat assessment and risk management are important features of security management that enable an enterprise to implement efficient security measures. An enterprise can use security management procedures such as risk assessment, information management and risk analysis to identify system vulnerabilities so that they can implement effective measures.

Security management functions

Some of the security management functions include authorising access, controlling security services, distributing security-related information, reporting security- related events and encryption key management.

Best practices for security management

  1. Identify and classify assets. This allows implementation of effective security strategies based upon the importance of the assets.
  2. Identify risks and determine solutions to mitigate them.
  3. Define, document and implement a process to maintain and monitor security solutions to avoid security breaches.
  4. Maintain a log of all security incidents.
