One of the key benefits of having workable Security Standards in place is the ability to expand or make changes to the system quickly as your needs or budgets change.
Knowing in advance where specific measures are required will vastly speed up the timeline from request to design and implementation. This allows changes to happen faster permitting the end users business to adapt to changes more quickly which increases productivity.
The Security Standards document will detail exact parts numbers, specification and supplier details enabling an efficient procurement process, where suppliers are made aware of delivery and performance expectations. This provides a structured method for defining where and what specific system components are required.
In addition, this results in less confusion and more decisive action to be taken when a change is needed.
