Best practices for managing compliance with security standards
Addressing security compliance can be frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive. Being governed by multiple regulations like OMB, ITIL, ISO 27001 & Access Management at the federal, state, and industry levels adds to the complexity. Not only are these mandates costly and complicated to address, but failure to comply can result in huge financial losses through fines, and damaged reputations.
Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 mandates and guidelines build a foundation for security best practices. With our diverse expertise in ITIL and ISO 27001 & Access Management, LogmeOnce Single Sign-On (SSO) and Identity Management (IdM) solutions for the cloud computing are specifically designed to enable organizations to meet these mandates.LogmeOnce provides a best practice-based approach to Information Security Management implementation, built around people, processes and technology aiming to meet the specifications of OMB, ITIL, ISO 27001 & Access Management.
|Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
HSPD-12 is a high-level policy statement that mandates all federal employees to have “a secure and reliable form of identification”. This credential allows “both physical and logical access to federally controlled facilities and information systems.” FIPS-201 provides the implementation standards for a more secure credential management process. The OMB Office is responsible for issuing guidance and ensuring compliance. Additionally the U.S. Department of Commerce is also responsible for creating similar set of standards for the federal government.
|ITIL Information Security Management (ISM)
Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a framework of best practice guidance in Information Technology Service Management (ITSM). It describes processes, functions and structures that support most areas of IT Service Management, mostly from the viewpoint of the Service Provider.There are 26 processes listed in ITIL V3 (2011 edition). One of the main processes of ITILV3 is Access Management.Access Management aims to grant authorized users the right to use a service, while preventing access to non-authorized users. The Access Management processes essentially execute policies defined in ITIL Information Security Management (ISM. ITIL ISM is based on the ISO 27001 standard.

Management Systems (ISMS)
The code of practice for International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 is recognized internationally as a structured methodology for Information Security Management (ISM) and is widely used as a benchmark for protecting sensitive and private information.A basic concept of security management is the information security. The primary goal of information security is to guarantee safety of information. When protecting information it is the value of the information that must be protected. These values are stipulated by the confidentiality, integrity and availability.Organizations that choose to adopt ISO 27001 strongly demonstrate their commitment to high levels of information security. There are 11 major controls required as part of the ISO 27001 standard that comprise best practices in information security including Access Management.
| Access Management
Access Management is a control process shared by ITIL V3 and ISO 27001. Access Management sometimes also referred to as Rights Management or Identity Management. Access Management grants users’ right to use a particular service, versus the security policies defined and established in Security and Availability Management. Access Management does not define security standards; it solely and exclusively executes the Security and Availability policies and actions that are in place. As such, it performs six key activities: Requesting Access,Verification,Providing rights Monitoring Identity Status Logging and Tracking Access, and Removing or Restricting Rights.
