Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM): the End-State

Cybersecurity and continuous monitoring are getting lots of attention these days. The move from compliance checks to risk management is commendable, but is it enough?

Continuous Monitoring - Part I

Is continuous monitoring worth $6B (yes, that's a "B")? That's what DHS expects to spend to improve the security of the .gov domains over the next 5 years.

About the Author(s)
  • Manage cyber engineering & architecture team developing security services, security reference architectures, big data security, mobility, cloud, cyber situational awareness and security operation center solutions. Responsible for developing innovative cyber solutions across public sector accounts. Collaborates with HP Labs, HP CTO Organization, product groups and third-party vendors to leverage innovative technologies to deliver the next generation of cybersecurity solutions.
  • A business first, senior executive, with over 20 years of hands on experience in defending banks, governments and corporations against cyberwarfare. My career in security started when I was employed to crack a secure system, which had locked down the boot process, whitelisting of applications and encrypted disks. I linked TeamOffice (an ICL email and collaboration system) with Microsoft Word to send an email which allowed me to do anything the person reading the email could do and send the results back to me, all without there knowledge. Having proved this vulnerability, I worked with Peter Simpson to create Defuse, a tool that blocked inappropriate actions. This successfully blocked Winword Concept, the first known malicous code in the wild. From these begginings I have investigated all aspects of security to provide an holistic approach to security as a business enabler and currently advising organisations on the suitability of the cloud to their needs.
