Everything You Need to Know to Conduct a Security Audit of Your Organization

In 1998, the National Security Agency (NSA) Information Assurance Methodology (IAM) was developed to meet the demand for information security (INFOSEC) assessments-a demand that was increasing due to Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD-63) while at the same time NSA was downsizing. NSA sought a way to maximize its resources to assist as many customers as possible and so they created a list of organizations that could perform the same service as the NSA. NSA quickly realized that this system would not only provide valuable information to consumers-it would also provide a vehicle for standardization of INFOSEC assessments.

  • Define What Composes an Assessment
    Learn about the NSA's three-phases: Assessment, Evaluation, and Red teaming
  • Understand Industry Concerns for the Assessment Site
    Review the items that affect your client: Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley, Financial Management and Accountability (FMA) Act, Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and others.
  • Create the Organizational Information Criticality Matrix (OICM)
    Create the OICM, which provides a basis for everything else in the methodology and clarifies the intentions and goals of the assessment process for the customer.
  • Handle Documentation Identification and Collection
    Work with the client to gather and define documents such as policy, guidelines, plans, SOPs, user documentation and see what happens when no documentation exists.
  • Understand the Technical Assessment Plan (TAP)
    Use the TAP to define all dates and scheduling, personnel involvement, understood boundaries, deliverables, priority concerns, and priority constraints.
  • Review the 18 NSA INFOSEC Baseline Classes and Categories
    Use these 18 categories to address the customer's security posture and determine what questions should be asked during the interview process.
  • Create a Recommendation Road Map
    Provide the customer with a road map to the best way to address or implement the corrective measures for negative findings.
  • Understand the Findings
    Assess the overall risk to a customer by looking at the threats, vulnerabilities, and asset value and analyze both negative and positive findin
    gs to create a true picture of the customer's security posture.
