But it's a lot to hold in one's mind, so to make your life easier, The Ultimate Security Pros' Checklist, created by Cynet, provides you with a concise and actionable checklist enabling you to keep track of all your operational, management and reporting tasks.
'We are constantly interacting with the security managers of our customers,' says Eyal Gruner, founder, and CEO of Cynet, 'and this gives us a unique perspective on what are the core duties they all care about. So, you can think of the checklist templates as an aggregated crowd-sourcing from the numerous CISOs, security directors, architects, and SOC managers we have worked with across the years.'
The Ultimate Security Pros' Checklist fully maps the core duties of common security positions – CISO, Director of Security, Security Architect, and SOC manager – to a list of check-boxes. Cynet created for each position a dedicated list capturing its unique responsibilities and objectives.
Ideally, this should serve as a compass that hangs over one's desk that can be reviewed and checked to ensure all key choirs are met.
The checklist covers all parts of the position, from the core technical security aspect to team management and executive reporting.
Here is an example from the CISO list:
While the template attempts to hit the widest common denominator, it's important to remember that there is no one size fits all in security, and each security pro can modify each field to adjust it to the specific conditions of his or her environment.
No two organizations are the same, and it makes sense to assume a wide variance depending on the industry, team size, organizational culture, and other variables.
Simply download the checklist that matches your position, customize to your need, and start using daily.
