Policies & Governance is the Foundation For Everything We Do! Call +1 (888) 896-7580 today.

Policies & governance, rules, laws, and requirements, it’s governance that serves as the foundation for any effective cybersecurity program by outlining the structure, authority, and processes needed to execute the organization’s cyber mission. Effective policies & governance stems from a clearly defined governance structure, stratification of authority, defined and well-communicated policies, and the supporting processes critical to enabling the program.

Lazarus Alliance provides policies & governance support to cybersecurity programs by building and evolving effective governance strategy in order to establish the proper authority and accountability.

Grounded within Lazarus Alliance’s HORSE Framework and The Security Trifecta methodology, our approach leverages a holistic understanding of the key mission, people, process, and technologies within the organization to develop a policies & governance program aligned to the culture and mission of the agency or company.

Just the facts ...

To support this effort, we provide the following services:

Program Management

Cybersecurity policies & governance continually evolve to meet dynamic threat environments and require diligence in program management to ensure that ongoing initiatives and objectives are achieved to fulfill the mission while simultaneously accounting for change.
Lazarus Alliance brings to each customer engagement our extensive experience supporting large scale cyber security policies & governance programs and implementing formal program management disciplines.

Our program management fundamentals focus on aligning initiatives, budgets, resources, tasks, and performance measurements to ensure our customers’ cybersecurity programs achieve mission success.

Strategic Planning

Lazarus Alliance understands that a cybersecurity policies & governance program cannot be successful without defining specific short and long-term goals, as well as an overall execution strategy for achieving those objectives. We support our customers in determining information security priorities and identifying areas of high risk in order to develop comprehensive strategic plans for enhancing cybersecurity programs.
Aligning the mission and vision of a cybersecurity program with an organization’s mission serves as a critical foundation for ensuring that the cybersecurity program has the appropriate resources, visibility, and focus within the organization. By providing a mission-oriented context for key stakeholders to understand the value proposition, we help our customers to build consensus and support for the organization's cyber initiatives, as well as obtain the necessary adoption across the enterprise to be successful.

Security Architecture

Enterprise security architecture drives standardization and service-level improvement. Standardization leads to lower operational costs and streamlined implementation of architectural components. Lazarus Alliance works with our customers to develop comprehensive enterprise architecture frameworks, which handle all aspects of information security, risk, and privacy. This enterprise security architecture then serves as a roadmap for positioning hardware, software, resources, and policies & governance to achieve a comprehensive security model for data protection.
Lazarus Alliance’s enterprise architects are subject matter experts in standardized frameworks for enterprise architecture and enterprise risk management and are properly validated by industry-recognized certifications.

Policies & Governance Management

Cyber security policies & governance serve a critical component within an organization’s risk management process. Policies define risk tolerance for the organization, ensure that it maintains compliance with overarching regulations and guidance, and establish accountability for the performance of the cybersecurity program. Managing the lifecycle of a policy from development through implementation requires careful planning to ensure that the policy is achievable and measurable. Similarly, it is critical to avoid common pitfalls in policy development, such as defining policies that are too granular or too ambiguous to ensure that the enterprise properly implements the policy.
