In an effort to help busy security managers, CISSP Shelley Bard's weekly column builds upon the concept of the perpetual calendar, offering a schedule of reminders for a proactive, strategic security plan. Here are the objectives Shelley prescribes for weeks 31 through 34.
Objective: When reviewing and updating your policies, also examine your organization's physical security. Week 32: Wireless -- Less wires, more issues
Objective: As part of network monitoring, run a site survey for rogue access points. Week 33: Pretty Good Privacy --More than pretty good
Objective: Secure e-mail, as needed, with PGP. Week 34: Mid-year status check -- What's going right?
Objective: Midway through your annual personnel review cycle, take some time to recognize what works and doesn't need fixing.
