Length:  13 pages

Security officers are under pressure to drive process efficiencies, which can be achieved with a more formalized approach to security processes.

This white paper discusses the value of achieving security process maturity, which requires an evolutionary shift—from simply reacting to security threats to creating mature, automated security processes. Next, it discusses potential candidates for security process improvement, offering deep dives on two processes: “security configuration assessment and exception management” and “privileged user monitoring.”

The paper concludes with details on NetIQ’s approach to security process automation, including five practical steps to take.
