The RMF allows an organization to develop an organization-wide risk framework that reduces the resources required to authorize a systems operation. Use of the RMF will help organizations maintain compliance with not only FISMA and OMB requirements but can also be tailored to meet other compliance requirements such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) or Sarbanes Oxley (SOX). With the publishing of NIST SP 800-37 in 2010 and the move of the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense to modified versions of this process, clear implementation guidance is needed to help individuals correctly implement this process. No other publication covers this topic in the detail provided in this book or provides hands-on exercises that will enforce the topics. Examples in the book follow a fictitious organization through the RMF, allowing the reader to follow the development of proper compliance measures. Templates provided in the book allow readers to quickly implement the RMF in their organization. The need for this book continues to expand as government and non-governmental organizations build their security programs around the RMF. The companion website provides access to all of the documents, templates and examples needed to not only understand the RMF but also implement this process in the reader’s own organization. A comprehensive case study from initiation to decommission and disposal Detailed explanations of the complete RMF process and its linkage to the SDLC Hands on exercises to reinforce topics Complete linkage of the RMF to all applicable laws, regulations and publications as never seen before

FISMA and the Risk Management Framework: The New Practice of Federal Cyber Security deals with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), a law that provides the framework for securing information systems and managing risk associated with information resources in federal government agencies. Comprised of 17 chapters, the book explains the FISMA legislation and its provisions, strengths and limitations, as well as the expectations and obligations of federal agencies subject to FISMA. It also discusses the processes and activities necessary to implement effective information security management following the passage of FISMA, and it describes the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Risk Management Framework. The book looks at how information assurance, risk management, and information systems security is practiced in federal government agencies; the three primary documents that make up the security authorization package: system security plan, security assessment report, and plan of action and milestones; and federal information security-management requirements and initiatives not explicitly covered by FISMA. This book will be helpful to security officers, risk managers, system owners, IT managers, contractors, consultants, service providers, and others involved in securing, managing, or overseeing federal information systems, as well as the mission functions and business processes supported by those systems. Learn how to build a robust, near real-time risk management system and comply with FISMA Discover the changes to FISMA compliance and beyond Gain your systems the authorization they need

Sie können noch so viel in Hardware, Software und Abwehrmechanismen investieren, absolute Sicherheit für Ihre IT-Infrastruktur wird es nicht geben. Wenn Hacker sich wirklich anstrengen, werden sie auch in Ihr System gelangen. Sollte das geschehen, müssen Sie sowohl technisch als auch organisatorisch so aufgestellt sein, dass Sie die Gegenwart eines Hackers erkennen und darauf reagieren können. Sie müssen in der Lage sein, einen Zwischenfall zu deklarieren und die Angreifer aus Ihrem Netzwerk zu vertreiben, bevor sie erheblichen Schaden anrichten. Das ist Network Security Monitoring (NSM). Lernen Sie von dem leitenden Sicherheitsanalytiker Sanders die Feinheiten des Network Security Monitoring kennen. Konzepte verstehen und Network Security Monitoring mit Open-Source-Tools durchführen: Lernen Sie die drei NSM-Phasen kennen, um diese in der Praxis anzuwenden.

Security in a Web 2.0+ World

A Standards-Based Approach

Discover how technology is affecting your business, and why typical security mechanisms are failing to address the issue of risk and trust. Security for a Web 2.0+ World looks at the perplexing issues of cyber security, and will be of interest to those who need to know how to make effective security policy decisions to engineers who design ICT systems – a guide to information security and standards in the Web 2.0+ era. It provides an understanding of IT security in the converged world of communications technology based on the Internet Protocol. Many companies are currently applying security models following legacy policies or ad-hoc solutions. A series of new security standards (ISO/ITU) allow security professionals to talk a common language. By applying a common standard, security vendors are able to create products and services that meet the challenging security demands of technology further diffused from the central control of the local area network. Companies are able to prove and show the level of maturity of their security solutions based on their proven compliance of the recommendations defined by the standard. Carlos Solari and his team present much needed information and a broader view on why and how to use and deploy standards. They set the stage for a standards-based approach to design in security, driven by various factors that include securing complex information-communications systems, the need to drive security in product development, the need to better apply security funds to get a better return on investment. Security applied after complex systems are deployed is at best a patchwork fix. Concerned with what can be done now using the technologies and methods at our disposal, the authors set in place the idea that security can be designed in to the complex networks that exist now and for those in the near future. Web 2.0 is the next great promise of ICT – we still have the chance to design in a more secure path. Time is of the essence – prevent-detect-respond!

This book provides a coherent overview of the most important modelling-related security techniques available today, and demonstrates how to combine them. Further, it describes an integrated set of systematic practices that can be used to achieve increased security for software from the outset, and combines practical ways of working with practical ways of distilling, managing, and making security knowledge operational. The book addresses three main topics: (1) security requirements engineering, including security risk management, major activities, asset identification, security risk analysis and defining security requirements; (2) secure software system modelling, including modelling of context and protected assets, security risks, and decisions regarding security risk treatment using various modelling languages; and (3) secure system development, including effective approaches, pattern-driven development, and model-driven security. The primary target audience of this book is graduate students studying cyber security, software engineering and system security engineering. The book will also benefit practitioners interested in learning about the need to consider the decisions behind secure software systems. Overall it offers the ideal basis for educating future generations of security experts.

Understanding and Managing Risk in Security Systems for the DOE Nuclear Weapons Complex

(Abbreviated Version)

Author: National Research Council,Division on Earth and Life Studies,Nuclear and Radiation Studies Board,Committee on Risk-Based Approaches for Securing the DOE Nuclear Weapons Complex

Publisher: National Academies Press

A nuclear weapon or a significant quantity of special nuclear material (SNM) would be of great value to a terrorist or other adversary. It might have particular value if acquired from a U.S. facility--in addition to acquiring a highly destructive tool, the adversary would demonstrate an inability of the United States to protect its nuclear assets. The United States expends considerable resources toward maintaining effective security at facilities that house its nuclear assets. However, particularly in a budget-constrained environment, it is essential that these assets are also secured efficiently, meaning at reasonable cost and imposing minimal burdens on the primary missions of the organizations that operate U.S. nuclear facilities. It is in this context that the U.S. Congress directed the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)--a semi-autonomous agency in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) responsible for securing nuclear weapons and significant quantities of SNM--asked the National Academies for advice on augmenting its security approach, particularly on the applicability of quantitative and other risk-based approaches for securing its facilities. In carrying out its charge, the committee has focused on what actions NNSA could take to make its security approach more effective and efficient. The committee concluded that the solution to balancing cost, security, and operations at facilities in the nuclear weapons complex is not to assess security risks more quantitatively or more precisely. This is primarily because there is no comprehensive analytical basis for defining the attack strategies that a malicious, creative, and deliberate adversary might employ or the probabilities associated with them. However, using structured thinking processes and techniques to characterize security risk could improve NNSA's understanding of security vulnerabilities and guide more effective resource allocation.

Since the 2014 Ebola outbreak many public- and private-sector leaders have seen a need for improved management of global public health emergencies. The effects of the Ebola epidemic go well beyond the three hardest-hit countries and beyond the health sector. Education, child protection, commerce, transportation, and human rights have all suffered. The consequences and lethality of Ebola have increased interest in coordinated global response to infectious threats, many of which could disrupt global health and commerce far more than the recent outbreak. In order to explore the potential for improving international management and response to outbreaks the National Academy of Medicine agreed to manage an international, independent, evidence-based, authoritative, multistakeholder expert commission. As part of this effort, the Institute of Medicine convened four workshops in summer of 2015 to inform the commission report. The presentations and discussions from the Workshop on Resilient and Sustainable Health Systems to Respond to Global Infectious Disease Outbreaks are summarized in this report.
