What is the Security Program Roles & Responsibilities?
The identification and definition of each position on the security office team and its individual role for providing security to the organization.
Roles & Responsibilities Considerations: Below are the top five considerations when developing a roles & responsibilities for your security program:
1. Ensure your Roles & Responsibilities Incorporates Your Security Program Strategy & Mission: Build your security program strategy, articulate it within your mission & mandate, and then implement that mission by the roles and responsibilities of your security program members.
2. Document your Roles & Responsibilities: Bottom-line, if you cannot document what it is you and your team are doing, then you do not know what you are doing.
4. Measure If your Team is Performing Their Documenting Role: Another item that leads to angst by the rest of the organization. If one of the members of your team is supposed to be in a penetrations tester role, yet they are writing security policies for the organization, people are going to get confused.
5. Educate Others on Your Teams Role: Do not assume those outside of your security program understand what a “Security Analyst” or “Security Architect” are, make sure to actively educate others what the members of your team do.
