Control Groups

The Verizon Cybertrust Security Enterprise Certification addresses 31 policy categories that affect all critical control groups within an organization.

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

  • Policy: Verizon Business recognizes that policies built on standards that are implemented and enforced are the foundation of successful Information Security Programs. The Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification addresses information security policies that affect such areas as access control, antivirus, data handling, third-party communications, e-mail and Internet usage, and help desk policies.
  • Human: The Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification program reviews the 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 awareness.
  • Physical: Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification assesses the physical characteristics that surround an organization's facilities and equipment including the power source, water supply, doors, alarms, ventilation. In addition, Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification assesses an organization's backup, failover, and disaster recovery systems and locations.
  • Device: Computing devices are generally the end-points of connectivity. The Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification program addresses physical computers, operating systems deployed as Internet servers, database servers, firewalls, routers, switches and desktop computers. Other device controls reviewed focus on the security risks associated with the utility and application programs, and vendor-provided, user-developed, or purchased services, such as HTTP and SMTP servers.
  • Network: Verizon Cybertrust Security Certification addresses the network interfaces that enable computers and other devices to provide Internet-based users with desired services. Examples of such devices include routers, firewalls, switches, hubs, security domains, wiring/cabling, modems, and DNS.
