People analyzing ERP policy and security

Last week, we covered the people component. Today, we’re continuing our ERP security factors series. So, we’re tackling ERP policy and security.

Firms tend to take policies for granted. After all, they usually dictate how to approach the system. But, they can go a long way in guaranteeing your data safety.

What’s the link between ERP policy and security?

ERP policy tackles governance directly. In other words, they dictate permissions and workflows. Thus, they’re a great starting point to improve cybersecurity.

We have many IT security standards available. Yet, choosing one often falls short. The best approach is to adopt what we need.

In many cases, that means integrating a few.

4 crucial ERP policy and security frameworks

Again, we’re going back to this study. It tackles 4 promising security frameworks and guidelines.

Curiously, each framework works for a different governance tier. We have corporate and IT governance. Then, we must assess IT and security management.

King II

Firstly, we have the King Committee’s protocol. These guidelines are perfect for corporate governance. For instance, it tackles accountability and responsibilities. It’s vital for assessing management and shareholders.

CobiT

Secondly, we have the IT governance framework. Naturally, it’s ideal for IT governance. It focuses on ensuring IT resources and strategy/vision align. It’s the best guide to study the “know-how” of ERP security.

ITIL

Thirdly, there’s the Information Technology Infrastructure Library. As the name implies, IT management is the focus. It defines processes, like problems and changes. Naturally, it details how to tackle them.

ISO 17799

Finally, we have the default international standard. Typically, it’s a basic guide to security management. It’s an extensive 10-module guide for security implementation. So, it’s a great choice for information security management.
