(ISC)² Case Study: Securing the Right Information Security Team
The UBS Investment Bank in Switzerland is a leading financial solution. The success of the company is centered around sensible and optimal use of the internet for all their business and investment needs. The case study tells the reader how this global exchange of information should be conducted without any security breach. To ensure this and to gain customer satisfaction, it is imperative to secure the services of highly trained professionals who can monitor policies and rectify security breaches as soon as they occur. If the threats, both internal and external, are not mitigated then it goes without saying what will happen to the company's future. As far as financial institutions are concerned, it would be a nail in the coffin for them. Realizing this factor, the HR department set out to look for the right combination of skills and personality to choose professionals who are capable of recognizing security problems in time and solve them quickly. The HR department constantly hold meetings with their line managers for this definitive purpose. The line managers are usually adept at realizing what kind of candidates are required for different departments in their company and how they can monitor the corporate identity of the company. To make sure they get the right applicant for the job, the screening process is strictly monitored so the HR department and the Line Management can match the candidate's aspirations and decide how they would work well with the company's future.
