Security Frameworks Provide a Common Language
- A security framework provides a common frame of reference that is valuable for conversations with leadership as well as potential clients.
- A business can leverage a security framework to understand its current environment and continually enhance its own security processes.
“A security framework helps you understand where you are and where you need to be.”
There are many benefits to adopting a security framework, believes Curtis Letson. On the business side, there are the standard replicable processes that you can drive from instant management alerting and overall environment awareness. From a security standpoint, you understand the world you’re living in and how to scale up and out from that world because you have that framework to grow out of. “A security framework helps you understand where you are and where you need to be,” he says. “It makes it easy to have a conversation with the business because you’re both talking about the same thing.”
