As technology and the information age propels organizations forward at a faster and faster pace, it becomes even more imperative that they protect their confidential information, such as customer and internal confidential data, from the ever-increasing threats of being hacked.
TraceCSO was developed to provide organizations the visibility into and accountability for their risk and compliance profile – making it simple to manage a secure environment that protects confidential information and meets regulatory requirements.
The cornerstone to manage an organization’s risk is to perform an information security risk assessment. TraceCSO helps you accomplish this through a comprehensive risk assessment that enables your organization to best understand the threats that are specific to your data.
Once those threats, and their associated risk, have been identified, your organization can determine how to best mitigate them through the implementation of controls.
A control is anything in place to help mitigate risk and can be policy, process, technical or training in nature. Most organizations already have some controls implemented, but many more that are not.
TraceCSO completes most of the work for you by pre-mapping common threats to standard controls – providing a baseline to customize to your organization’s environment.
Once controls are identified and assessed, a mitigation plan is generated that provides your organization all the data points necessary to determine which remaining controls should be implemented.
Typically, decisions to implement controls depend on their effectiveness and cost. TraceCSO helps make decisions easier by identifying ineffective or unnecessary controls and recommending more effective replacements – ultimately leading the organization to make better risk-based decisions and optimize its information security budget.
Information gathered during the risk assessment populates all of the functional areas of TraceCSO and provides the infrastructure to manage implementation control through an integrated ticketing system.
TraceCSO includes and integrates controls for training, policy, process, vulnerability and vendor management and doesn’t require any additional third-party software to do so. TraceCSO also provides guidance when implementing controls that are specific to your organization’s needs and are not already prebuilt and available within TraceCSO.
Leveraging a database of hundreds of authorities and tens of thousands of global citations and regulations, TraceCSO makes your information risk and compliance profile more visible, more accessible, more manageable and more valuable than ever –
so you can automate and ensure compliance in a rapidly changing market landscape.
As organizations continue to manage their on-going information security program, results are communicated across your organization and throughout the system to allow an automated and seamless audit or compliance review process.
Through the application of built-in best practices, TraceCSO places priority on your organization’s information security and leads your organization down a path of compliance by default. With TraceCSO as your Cloud Security Officer and TraceSecurity as your trusted partner, the power over information security and compliance is yours.
