Corporate Security team that was once viewed as a cost center in an organization, is maturing into a value-add, data-driven team supporting the organization’s overall business goals and objectives. With the addition of new technology and continued changes to how businesses run daily, your Security team’s role in your organization is transforming.
As business processes continue to advance, your team is required to move beyond your traditional function to be more aligned to the rest of the organization. By providing real-time analysis of incidents, threats, and security events, your team is carving out an integral role in the business. In order to do that, your team must think ahead and push security processes beyond their previous limits. This means integrating with other business units, stakeholders and organizations to ensure total coverage.
We’ve worked with hundreds of Corporate Security teams on implementing incident management, investigations and case management, security operations and security risk management processes. We used these learnings to create a model for maturing security programs – a clear, applicable and measurable model to help security teams of any size scale their programs and become effective business partners to the organization.
Resolver’s Maturity Model for Corporate Security is a roadmap that provides Corporate Security teams a means to advance their organization’s security program by defining the key metrics and activities. By leveraging the Maturity Model, your team will have a clear path to optimize operations – transforming the role of the Security team and paving the way for you to become an effective business partner across the organization.
The Maturity Model for Corporate Security is flexible and should be used as a guide and not a scoring mechanism. Each section acts as a steppingstone for the next, but rarely do organizations fit perfectly in a single stage. If there are activities that don’t apply to your organization, move forward.
While industries, business types and regions vary from company to company, we’ve found that the way that Security teams mature in their programs is very similar. The incident types, workflow statuses and organizational protocols may be different, but the intentions and goals are the same.
We built this model to help guide you through your security journey. This eBook gives you tips and tactics to help you answer questions like: How should I enhance my existing process? How can I incorporate new ones? What type of activities are other organizations performing? What are the most mature security teams in the world doing?
