Monitor processes in your team

You do this by:

  • Assessing the risks. Classify the processes based on the CIA Triad.
  • Conducted a security check when a new application is concerned or a modification of an existing one.
  • Take measures in the event of security risks, based on the CIA Triad.
  • Sign the Risk Acceptance Form if you decide NOT to take any measures in case of HIGH-risk security issues. The CISO will submit this decision to the Executive Board.

Lead by example

It is important that you as a supervisor encourage and stimulate safety awareness among staff. This begins with consciously given a good example.

You can stimulate awareness by paying attention to information security in team meetings and informing team members of relevant activities, e.g. the Digital Safety at Work training.

Decide what risks are acceptable

You decide what risks are acceptable by finding the optimum compromise between measures on the one hand and the resulting limitations for the process, on the other.

If you decide NOT to take any measures in case of HIGH-risk security issues, sign the Risk Acceptance Form. The process description of Risk Acceptance can be found here.
