Cybersecurity Assurance is what the security team in charge of the controls does to provide assurance that these controls work. This is done by doing regular checks to make sure everything is okay. These can be specific tests, like reviews of processes or scans of infrastructure, and they should give the business enough confidence that the security ecosystem is working well.
Especially in the financial sector, risks and key business goals will be checked on a regular basis. There is a chance that the audit will be done to a standard instead of the organization’s risk profile.
- Condition: what is happening at the moment?
- Consequence: what are the criteria and indicators?
- Cause: why is this happening at the moment?
- Criteria: what is the impact that might happen if it is not fixed?
