527-MODULE 2 CASE
Continuous monitoring is a critical part of risk management process. “Continuous
monitoring is ongoing observance with intent to provide warning. A continuous
monitoring capability is the ongoing observance and analysis of the operational
states of systems to provide decision support regarding situational awareness and
deviations from expectations.” —Source: Keith Willett (MITRE) in support of the
“Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) is defined as maintaining
ongoing awareness of information security, vulnerabilities, and threats to support
organizational risk management decisions.” —NIST.
Organizations should establish, implement, and maintain ISCM. ISCM should be a
recursive process as its monitoring strategy is continually refined so that ISCM is a
robust system. Tiered organization-wide ISCM framework and dynamic ISCM
processes are proposed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Please scan through the important framework and processes in the following article.
