The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Security testing specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 667 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Security testing improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 667 standard requirements:
- IDS/IPS traffic pattern analysis can often detect or block attacks such as a denial-of-service attack or a network scan. However, in some cases this is legitimate traffic (such as using cloud infrastructure for load testing or security testing). Does the cloud provider have a documented exception process for allowing legitimate traffic that the IDS/IPS flags as an attack pattern?
- What types of functional tests are performed on the software during its development (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, security testing, integrated testing)?
- What training does your company offer related to defining security requirements, secure architecture and design, secure coding practices, and security testing?
- What types of functional tests are/were performed on the software (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, security testing, integrated testing)?
- When does security testing occur during the SDLC (e.g., unit level, subsystem, system, certification and accreditation)?
- What security testing tools are available that work in conjunction with the Security gateway?
- Do we use an application security testing service to identify areas of risk?
- Has security testing been performed on the software with posted results?
- What type of assurance and security testing activities are supported?
- Has functional security testing been performed on the services?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Security testing investments work better.
This Security testing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
