periodic evaluation of existing security programs is a
prudent methodology whereby a company can identify
whether existing protections and safeguards remain
adequate in the face of changing threats and risks.
Depending upon the need, The Banks Group's program
evaluations will address all the security program
elements and how effectively they integrate with one
another. Changes or enhancements to one program
element will require consideration in other elements to
ensure the maximum return on the security effort.
As part of the program evaluation
process The Banks Group considers potential
"best-in-class" practices and application of security
technology for the specific environment. Although
this and other similar terms are often heard it is
imprudent to apply any of them without careful
consideration as to whether they will be appropriate
within your environment. In this instance a "Gap
Analysis" might be used to identify what is the most
appropriate path to follow and what the return will be
on your effort and financial expenditure.
