NKSoft Security Program Development Methodology A successful security program requires the spon sorship and support of the company’s Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. The su pport by the highest executive management is paramount to implement and manage the security program. The program also requires the complete support at all levels of management . This support ensures a unified endorsement indicating to all personnel that security is an inte gral part of the business vision and plan. This also assures adherence to the program througho ut the entire enterprise enforcing uniform compliance. The security program must be comprehensive and cohesive to ensure all organizations in the enterprise are aware of their roles and resp onsibilities and understand the importance of implementing and managing the program. Ultimately, the organization assigned the responsibility to develop, implement and manage the program is accountable for its success, but no one individual or organizatio n is responsible for the security and protection of assets, including information; rather every individual employee is responsible for security. Every organization is responsible for securing and protec ting the enterprise assets and information. We have customized our proposal based on the security offering shown below:

18. NERC/CIP Security Offering Copyright @2010-2016 NKSoft Corporation April 22, 2016 15 NKSoft Enterprise Security Architecture Framework This framework presents a holistic view of the se curity areas needed within an organization. Each of the main concepts presented above have se veral layers of detail that are used to execute these concepts within an organization. To help you see how security areas are addressed, we have selected our Logging, Monitoring and Report ing Blueprint within the Security Foundation area as an example. Logging, Monitoring and Reporting Blueprint The Logging, Monitoring and Reporting Blueprin t is comprised of several Security Domains that in total reflect the minimum set of areas th at should to be addressed for security logging, monitoring and reporting. In this particular example we used ISO/IEC27002 and well-known best practices as a baseline in creating a general se t of security domains. This blueprint consists of seven Security Domains: 1) Anti-Virus, 2) Event Logging, 3) IDS and Alarm, 4) Malicious Code Filtering, 5) URL Filtering, 6) Lexicon/ Word Content Filtering and 7) File Integrity.

Our ESA Framewor k ensures security domains of interest (e.g. network infrastructure, identity management syst ems, remote access, portals, biometrics, web and legacy applications, etc.) are designed, developed and deployed to be consistent with an organization’s overall security program and architecture. Our ESA Framework allows your organization to de velop an effective and cost efficient security operating model that is aligned with core busi ness processes and applications that matter the most. It allows a Top-Down and Bottoms-Up approach to be used in addressing security program and architecture needs. The ESA Fr amework is comprised of five key areas: Common Risk Language – Consensus on threats, vulnerab ilities and acceptable risks is established by leveraging ISO/IEC 27002, In dustry Specific Standards, and Strategic Business Drivers to create a Desired Risk Profile – everyone is on the same page . Foundational Blueprints – Standards-based, risk tolerance- based foundational blueprints are use to define, develop and implement an ente rprise-level core security architecture and business operating model – a core security program and architecture is established. Business Management Process Enhancement – Leveraging Foundational Blueprints, business management processes (e.g. System Development Life Cycle, Help Desk, etc.) are refined and calibrated to efficiently integrate security standards and expertise throughout the system development life cycle and day-to-day operations – evolutionary integration of security is achieved across the enterprise. Business Process and Architecture Enablement – Core Business Processes and Architectures are defined, developed and deployed in conc ert with the core security architecture operating model and standards-based, risk tolerance-based criteria – end-to-end transaction integrity achieved. Performance Monitoring – Dashboard is established to allow line-level and senior management to monitor and report security performance effectiveness by measuring key performance indicators of core business proc esses, architectures and business management processes – is everything ok? Our approach strives to establish cost effectiv e sustainable business pr actices. A graphical depiction of the ESA Framework is presented below:
