Management of Information Security, 2 nd ed. 12-3 Lecture Notes and Teaching Tips with Quick Quizzes Introduction Information security is a process, not a project. However, each element of an information security program must be managed as a project, even if it is an ongoing one, so that all elements of the information security program are completed with quality deliverables, on a timely basis, and within budget. While there is no guarantee that project management and organizational skills will be part of every information security analyst position description, there is much evidence that employers are seeking individuals that couple their information security focus and skills with strong project management skills. Information security is a continuous series, or chain, of projects. As the chain progresses, the security systems development life cycle (SecSDLC) guides the management of each individual project. Some aspects of information security are not project based; rather, they are managed processes (operations). Projects are discrete sequences of activities with starting points and defined completion points. In other words, a “project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service.” Quick Quiz 1. What is a project? ANSWER: Projects are discrete sequences of activities with starting points and defined completion points.
