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.

3. Be Specific: A vague presentation of the roles & responsibilities of your security program team will lead to confusion and potential angst by those outside of your program.

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.
