Time-Based Model of Security
The Time-Based Model of Security is a framework for understanding and managing security risks over time. It was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is used to help organizations prioritize and allocate resources for security efforts based on the potential impact and likelihood of different types of risks.
The Time-Based Model of Security is based on the idea that security risks change over time, and that it is important to consider not only the current level of risk, but also how the risk is likely to evolve in the future. The model suggests that organizations should focus on managing risks that are imminent or imminent, while also taking into account longer-term risks and opportunities.
The Time-Based Model of Security consists of four phases:
- Pre-Incident: In this phase, the organization focuses on proactive measures to prevent security incidents from occurring, such as implementing security controls, training employees, and conducting risk assessments.
- Incident: In this phase, an incident has occurred and the organization must respond to it in a timely and effective manner. This may involve containment, recovery, and restoration efforts.
- Post-Incident: In this phase, the organization focuses on restoring normal operations and learning from the incident to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
- Continuous Improvement: In this phase, the organization continuously monitors and improves its security posture to ensure that it is prepared to manage emerging risks and threats.
The Time-Based Model of Security provides a structured approach for understanding and managing security risks over time, and helps organizations allocate resources and prioritize efforts based on the potential impact and likelihood of different types of risks.
