Purpose Driven Security®
Organized crime, state-sponsored cyber teams and hacktivists all have different aims; however, the one common theme that unites them is the unauthorized access to and use of computer systems to fulfill their mission. That mission varies but may include:
Stealing data (intellectual property, personally identifiable information, etc.)
Gaining control over computer resources
Spreading infection (creating new botnets)
Proving a point to perceived enemies
Monitoring actions and decisions of organizations and nation states
Disrupting normal operations and serving as a catalyst of anarchy
Because no silver bullet protects assets from these cyber threats, a paradigm shift is required to reduce risk to organizations. HALOCK Security Labs has pioneered a security risk method to meet these cyber threats. At the foundation of this model is a service philosophy called Purpose Driven Security®, which helps define reasonable security – the right amount of security to protect critical assets — not too much, not too little.
This philosophy can best be summarized as reasonable and appropriate risk management:
Security controls implemented should encompass the necessary balance ofcompliance,business objectives, and obligations on how they affect all parties. Not all security controls should be implemented, and those that are should be implemented only to a certain degree depending on the calculated risk being treated.
Organizations have an obligation to perform proactive due care to reduce liability for shareholders, clients,partners, employees and the greater good as appropriate. Thus, businesses need to take into consideration on cyber threats that are foreseeable, which HALOCK can help identify.
Establish reasonable security controls based upon your organization’s mission, objective, and social responsibility throughDuty of Care Risk Assessments (DoCRA). This comprehensive approach enables organizations effectively support a security budget and maximize protection of critical information assets.
