IT compliance monitoring and control using Huntsman

Compliance isn’t optional Joshua Corman, Research Director for The 451 Group, makes this point clearly: ‘The question is not: should I be compliant, but … how do I reduce the cost of compliance such that I can liberate funds, time, and cycles to focus on going beyond compliance?’ (Noncompliance Much More Costly Than Compliance; Dark Reading Jan 31, 2011). The strengthening role of IT compliance was borne out by a survey of 110 security professionals at the AusCERT conference in May 2011. It showed that 52 per cent of IT security managers marked compliance with regulation and legislation as the key driver for security investment in the next 12 months (Watch Guard: local organizations under greater pressure to protect against data loss; ARN May 26, 2011). In 2011 effective IT security is more vital than ever. In 2010 ASIO Director David Irvine warned that ‘corporate networks were as much a target as (government) defense and security systems’ for attempts by cyber sleuths seeking to steal Australia’s secrets. On the same day, Defense Minister, John Faulker, added that, of the 2400 ‘incidents on networks considered to be medium to high risk’ in the previous year, only 200 were directly related to defense’ (Australian Financial Review, July 30, 2010; p.1) so the trend is pretty clear. In October 2010, Australian Defense Department figures showed an increasing number of incidents across government computer and communication systems, some being serious enough to threaten the security and functionality of these systems (Cyber Soldiers, D Welch, Sydney Morning Herald, News Review, and October 9-10, 2010). These warnings echo earlier ones from UK agencies that businesses couldn’t dismiss these cautions as being relevant only to national enterprise security and intelligence. The warnings are in media every day. Clearly, both the public and private sectors are vulnerable and, to protect IT systems and valuable information, everyone must be more vigilant. With a strong, proactive compliance process, you have the foundation for effective defense: you can determine the legitimacy of traffic transiting your network and the associated risks, and you can minimize the threat of potential losses or harm. In summary, we’ve seen that, rather than viewing compliance as only necessary to meet obligations, there’s an upside: it can be leveraged to improve processes, systems and protect your bottom line. We’ve also looked at the increasingly risky environments in which IT systems operate and how good compliance can provide protective benefits. In this context, it’s reassuring that robust compliance frameworks used with intelligent SIEM technology can deliver the full benefits of pro‐active compliance management, without much more effort than it takes to tick the box. More than this, if the goal of compliance is to achieve and maintain corporate fitness, as with your own health, the sooner you start the better.
