(Reader, here you can describe a missed opportunity, due to bad Security Management or a process dragged down by bureaucracy) Noticeable increases in the potential productivity of end users and key personnel through reduced interruption times caused by Security Issues. The goal statement of Security Management is to protect the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of IT Services and Assets.
By the very nature of this statement we can expect to start seeing a reduction in loss of service due to security issues and bad planning. Whether end users and staff take advantage of this reduced down-time is not an issue for IT professionals to monitor.
Knowing that we have made more working time available is what we need to publish – NOT productivity rates. An ITIL Security Management process will guide you towards understanding the financial implications of all those necessary confidentiality, integrity and availability requirements needed in the IT infrastructure. This has real benefits as it may prevent an organization from spending money on areas of the IT Infrastructure where there really isn’t a need for building high security measures for the business. Security Management aides in improving the security aspects of the organization with respect to IT. Security Management will work in conjunction with Availability Management to ensure implementation of those security requirements described in the Security Policy. Correct management of Security Requirements will help in maintaining the right levels of availability needed by the business. With a sound Security Management process we can expect an overall improvement in the level of Availability as better planning can occur under a structure, repeatable process. Any ITIL process has the potential to increase the credibility of the IT group, as they offer a higher quality of service, combined with an overall professionalism that can be lacking in ad-hoc activities.
