In today’s world, many institutions in business and administration are dependent on the proper functioning of IT. Due to this increasing dependency and the growing threat potential, information security is becoming more and more important.
The German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI)) offers with the IT-Grundschutz, a combination of a methodology for security management with concrete measures recommendations. These recommendations cover not only technical aspects, but also organizational, personnel and structural aspects. In general, BSI IT-Grundschutz provides a recognized approach for developing and reviewing security concepts.
In order to adapt these recommended measures to the respective organization, so-called modules are used to map the structure of the company. These modules contain possible hazards that can affect the object and measures to counteract them.
Implementation in CRISAM®
The BSI GSTOOL is used to create such security concepts and is widely used in Germany in particular. In addition to the official GSTOOL, however, CRISAM® also offers the possibility of establishing IT-Grundschutz in the company, since the structure of CRISAM® is similar to the module principle of IT-Grundschutz.
For this reason, CRISAM® is also listed on the BSI-website as an official alternative to GSTOOL.
The CRISAM® Explorer offers all the necessary modules to map the basic protection topic in its entirety and also offers numerous options for further risk management, such as a monetary valuation. The risk objects are modeled in a fault tree, and the entire IT risk management process can be mapped. Another major advantage is the customizable and meaningful reporting capabilities of CRISAM®.
