critical control groups within an organization.
The Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification focuses on five
control groups critical to information security.

are implemented and enforced are the foundation of successful Information Security

security policies that affect such areas as access control, antivirus, data
handling, third-party communications, e-mail and Internet usage, and help desk

performance and awareness controls of an organization's human resources that can
affect the organization's overall security posture, such as security policies,
management procedures, training, hiring, corrective actions and general information

characteristics that surround an organization's facilities and equipment including
the power source, water supply, doors, alarms, ventilation. In addition, Verizon

operating systems deployed as Internet servers, database servers, firewalls, routers,
switches and desktop computers. Other device controls reviewed focus on the security

interfaces that enable computers and other devices to provide Internet-based users with
