What is security governance? Basically every company have their own framework of standards, processes and company activities to ensure the whole organisation run smoothly everyday. All this company data and activities must be keep in private and only authorized people can access the data and activities. This is security governance or in other simpler word we called it information security.
Company data and activities can be physical or electronic form. So it is the responsibility of the employees especially the company’s board members to secure such data from cyber risk. All board members must aware about all the type of cyber risk and what the constant hazard are. There are many type of cyber risk in the world such as botnets, hacking, malware and the list goes on. Each type offered different ramification and different treatment. By doing the security governance, the company can prevent any cyber risk to infiltrate the organisation.
The authorized member of the company often will conduct the information security to control this cyber risk until they find it tolerable. This can be done through repeatedly documentation and monitoring so the company data and activities can be secured effectively and efficiently.
The security governance or information security also can act as a performance metric. As we mention before, company will make sure the cyber risk is at it low so the company objectives can be achieve.
In addition, most of us always confused between security governance with security management. Security management is the one who make decision to reduce the cyber risk but security governance call the shots on who entitled to make the decision. Furthermore, management will suggest which security strategies to implement. Meanwhile governance will assure the strategies meet with company objectives, rules & regulations.
