    IT Schutzbedarf nach MaRisk 2016 analysieren

    Der aktuelle Entwurf zur Novellierung der MaRisk fordert neben vielen weitreichenden Neuerungen in einem kleinen Satz im AT 4.3.2 “die Feststellung des Schutzbedarfs, die Ableitung von Sicherheitsanforderungen sowie die Festlegung entsprechender Sicherheitsmaßnahmen” für die Steuerung und das Controlling von IT-Risiken. Was hier kurz und knapp beschrieben ist, bedeutet für viele Organisationen eine wesentliche Änderung aktueller Prozesse im IT-Risikomanagement. Im Folgenden erarbeiten wir wesentliche Fragen, die sich bei der Durchführung einer Schutzbedarfsanalyse stellen und bieten Antworten zur Umsetzung einer nachhaltigen Lösung für IT-Risikomanagement. Diesem Ansatz folgend, sind Organisationen in der Lage, einem Regulator die angemessene und wirksame Umsetzung der Anforderungen aus der MaRisk AT 4.2.3 zu demonstrieren.

    Restricted Funnels, Expert Digest and more new features

    Summary of Changes 1. Funnel audience After our initial release of Funnels - Alyne's risk-driven workflow and categorisation component - we are now adding extended access control. Experts can restrict viewing and using Funnels to selected Alyne users. 2. Expert Digest The Expert Digest is a daily or weekly notification email sent to owners of Assessments in case recipients added comments or asked questions to an ongoing Assessment - very handy for keeping track of larger Assessment campaigns with lots of Controls and recipients. 3. Controls Selector Update The Controls Selector is the core widget when defining Control Sets and Assessments as it allows you to browse efficiently through the Alyne Controls Library and select the Controls you want to have in your Control Set or Assessment.
