Create Confidence for Processed, Stored and Transported Cloud Data

In the world today, data and information are more a part of our everyday life than any other time in history and our dependence in this requirement for information continues to exponentially grow and expand. Information security is an undeniable topic being discussed in households, media outlets, boardrooms, governments, nations, etc. One aspect in our array of services, is providing information for effective security in a system that can be introduced to implementations and maintenance and help create confidence in your cloud data.

This information is derived from documented material located at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The document “Draft - System Security Engineering Special Publication 800-160” was tailored as a concise and useful learning tool by documenting perspectives through a synopsis of the aspects and characteristics of “Draft - System Security Engineering Special Publication 800-160”.

What is System?

Characteristics of a System

Defined as the combination of interacting Elements organized to achieve one or more purposes.
  • Each element of a system, the System Element, is implemented to fulfill specific requirements.
  • System Elements include discrete components, products, services, subsystems, system infrastructure, or the Enterprise.
  • System Elements include controls to manage Element incursion.
  • A viewpoint of context for a System could be a simple, discrete component or geographically vast and complex with numerous distributions.
