Description

Developing a Comprehensive Security Program answers the question common among security managers, "What is a model security program, and how does our program compare to it?" In this seven-minute Proven Practices presentation, narrator Elizabeth Lancaster outlines the baseline elements of a security program, which have been defined by experienced Security Executive Council members and research.

This presentation is not sector-specific--meaning it's applicable for all organizations and industries. In addition to the baseline security program elements, Lancaster also discusses business-aligned program elements, program characteristics, a program maturity model, and the skills and knowledge the security department needs to possess. Developing a Comprehensive Security Program may be used as a benchmark for existing programs and to educate senior management. It also provides a general understanding of the security function as it currently exists.

Developing a Comprehensive Security Program is a part of Elsevier's Security Executive Council Risk Management Portfolio, a collection of real world solutions and "how-to" guidelines that equip executives, practitioners, and educators with proven information for successful security and risk management programs.
