Sample text

If no one supports it, or if it is only supported by a ­limited number of individuals in a minimal number of organizational elements, it will fail. Executives must provide their active support, especially in its early stages, by providing resources to the initiative; business managers must exercise continuing support; technicians must understand the benefit of the program and support it through their day-to-day control of system controls; and users must see evidence of enhanced security provided by the program to perform the security functions inherent to their jobs.

System authorization policy and guidance should be precise, clear, and as brief as possible to enhance understanding and to limit confusion. It should be located in the same repository and should be tightly controlled by the CISO. For every new policy document created, an old one should be removed to avoid its continued use. Stability of documentation is a useful goal, particularly in light of the fact that system authorization documents are being used at very low levels of the organization. System administrators rely on clear and stable documentation in developing security plans, minimum security baseline self-assessments, and other documentation, and they expect that once they learn how to comply with the rules, the rules will not be changing frequently.

The CISO needs to establish a process that maximizes consistency while minimizing ad hoc readings and opinions that may not withstand scrutiny when applied enterprise-wide or over time. Other considerations for the system authorization program manager when providing advice and assistance include ◾◾ Having Knowledge of the Program: The program manager is expected to be the absolute subject matter expert and resident “guru” who offers the most reliable information on the system authorization program and how it works.
