Why Technical Excellence? Because without strong technical solutions, the information security team will chronically underperform. Why Organizational Engagement? Because the key to keeping the promise is building influence and support with business leaders through proactive education, advocacy, negotiation, communication and an array of soft skills that weave information security into the fabric of the operation.
To make these masteries actionable, IANS breaks down Technical Excellence and Organizational Engagement into best practices and critical capabilities based on the research. We then thematically group those practices into The 8 Domains of Technical Excellence and The 7 Factors of Organizational Engagement, and offer online diagnostic tools and reports that allow you to baseline your current posture against the models, the dataset, and industry peers. Completing both diagnostics requires less than 60 minutes. For clients, a rich set of advisory and consulting services helps translate these findings into action plans and professional development roadmaps.
