What is a Security Framework?

A security framework is a set of documents that thoroughly define the security policies, procedures and processes followed by your organization. It details to all stakeholders, both internally and externally, how information, systems and services are managed in relation to security threats.

A high-quality security framework can help your organization reduce the level of security risk and exposure to vulnerabilities. In case of a security incident, a security framework is what your organization will refer to when attempting to manage and resolve it. It also provides an outline of what your organization should be doing on a daily basis in order to reduce its exposure to risk.

A security framework can further help your organization better manage relations with government regulators, business partners and customers. If any of these should inquire as to how your organization responds to a particular threat, you will be able to confidently and quickly provide them with an answer.
