A Point on People
In considering the people, have in mind the following:
3 Cs: Capacity, Capability and Confidence. The people involved need the capacity to get the work done, the capability to perform the jobs and the confidence to know what to do.
External support can be great to help with any of the 3Cs but before choosing a third party also consider the use of technology to ensure you have visibility, transparency, sustainability and lowest total cost of operation. Good technology helps with capacity, capability and confidence too, freeing up any specialist resources to focus on the thorny and specific needs of the organisation.
Ensure your leadership is involved. Do not abdicate accountability and select a firm or people that take a business led strategic approach to security, who follow recognised standards and are experienced in working in a digital paperless fashion.
