Proactive Security Policy
Enforcement: A Practical
September 2003

Battling a constant barrage of worms, viruses and attacks on enterprise systems, IT and security administrators are seeking more efficient and effective ways to protect information assets. Worm-weary security professionals seem to be constantly reacting to the latest assault on vulnerable systems, "putting out fires" on a weekly basis. A proactive approach to security policy and compliance offers a more effective means of managing these challenges. By understanding the Policy Enforcement Lifecycle and implementing configuration standards, acceptable use policies, and information classification and handling procedures, enterprises can significantly reduce their risk and their workload. This White Paper explains why policy enforcement is so important, how to manage the process, and how to apply solutions from NetIQ to help implement a proactive and practical approach to enterprise security policy compliance.

Why Enforcing Security Policy Is Critical
Virtually every organization is subject to policies of one form or another and must enforce those policies. Yet far too many policies tend to be expressed in a voluminous printed binder that gathers dust on a shelf rather than guide daily practice and workplace behavior. Security policies are no exception. Organizations today, however, are recognizing that enforcing security policies is no longer an option but a critical component for managing productivity, protecting one's image and assets, and minimizing liability. Several trends are driving this recognition. Growth of Incidents: The sophistication and cost of security incidents from worms, viruses and
attacks (both inside and outside the organization) continue to escalate. The latest version of the SoBig virus, for example, hit the Internet August 18, 2003 and created more than a million copies of itself in 24 hours. In addition, normal human and organizational behavior often exposes organizations to risks. Workers often act in ways that put their organizations at risk without even being aware of the consequences. Improper use of corporate technologies exposes the company to harassment-related lawsuits, accidental discloses private or sensitive information, increases vulnerabilities, and reduces productivity. Regulatory Compliance: Regulations and standards in many industries require compliance with and
enforcement of information security policies. Examples include Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), Sarbanes-Oxley, European Communities (Data Protection) Regulations, and EU Privacy Directive. Penalties for non-compliance can be severe. A mistaken placement of email addresses among Prozac users by Eli Lilly Company, for example, generated nationwide negative press and triggered an FTC investigation. Under Sarbanes-Oxley, a corporate officer can be fined up to $1 million and/or face 10 years in prison for signing a false financial report. Audit Scrutiny: IT audits and other audits of internal controls typically highlight deviations from
corporate policies, regulations, and industry best practices. Lack of critical security policies is often an audit finding as well. Many different types of auditors conduct audits: internal auditors, independent financial statement auditors (who review internal controls), regulators (e.g., OCC, FDIC, FDA, etc.), and customers and business partners (who rely on the organization's controls). IT managers and security officers are very sensitive to audit issues and tend to seek immediate resolution to audit findings. Moreover, it is no longer viewed as acceptable to simply have policies. For example, one large energy company recently lost a multi-million harassment-related lawsuit. The cause of the suit stemmed from inappropriate e-mail (a joke). While the company had a policy against offensive workplace behavior, including e-mails, it was argued that because the company had not routinely educated employees on that policy and had not enforced the policy the company had not taken reasonable measures to prevent a hostile work environment. Independent of the drivers behind policy enforcement, most security professionals recognize that policy enforcement is simply good business since sound policies often encourage efficiency and help reduce risk. Proactive Security Policy Enforcement: A Practical Approach 1 Policy Enforcement Challenges
Organizations commonly treat policy enforcement as a project rather than an ongoing business process. For example, an organization may review and develop policies once every few years, launch a security awareness campaign once a year, conduct sexual harassment policy training every year, and perform a security audit every six months. Treating security policy and compliance as a series of projects can be very inefficient – like balancing your checkbook every six months. It is much more time-consuming than enforcing security policies as a routine way of doing business. To make policy management an ongoing process that is practical and effective, policy enforcement should be automated, repeatable and measurable. To do so, organizations must overcome hurdles related to the establishment of metrics, organization of security resources, limitations of existing technologies, sheer scale of the enterprise and scarcity of required expertise. Metrics
Most managers understand that "you can't manage what you don't measure." Security policies are often
difficult to enforce because organizations rarely generate metrics for policy compliance. Key security
policy metrics must include:
Policy awareness: Most organizations are unable to tell the degree to which workers know their
security policies. In fact, many treat it like advertising, with little ability to tell how effective security training is. Metrics should include the percentage of workers that have signed compliance statements for key policies within the last year and quiz results based on key policies and security topics. Technical compliance: Organizations often lack metrics on how well their mission critical
technologies (e.g., operating systems, databases, and web servers) comply with policies and standards regarding security configuration and patch levels. Metrics should illustrate compliance levels of key technologies based on risk. User compliance: Organizations rarely can tell how many workers have agreed to abide by policies
or how well they abide by key policies such as acceptable use policies and information classification and handling policies. Metrics should include the number of times acceptable use policies for e-mail and web are being violated or violations are attempted. Only with the right metrics can security officers quickly hone in on critical problems and spend resources where they have the greatest benefit. Organization
In many cases, organizations also create a policy compliance group as part of the internal audit and/or
information security team. Unfortunately, these groups often do not include participants at the business
unit level or in the IT department to ensure enforcement of security policies. While a central compliance
group is generally recommended, it should develop and specify procedures for administrators to use in
implementing and enforcing policies.
Policy enforcement processes should also be integrated with other business processes to ensure consistent and continuous application of policies. For example, technical compliance procedures should feed change management procedures to make sure policies adapt to reflect a changing business environment. Proactive Security Policy Enforcement: A Practical Approach 2 Technology
Because many fundamental technologies such as operating systems, databases and web servers are not
designed to adequately enforce key security policies, it is essential that technology issues be addressed
Acceptable use restrictions: Users should be prevented from browsing illicit web sites, downloading
or uploading inappropriate files, and engaging in other dangerous web and instant messenger activities. Information classification controls: Users should be prohibited from sending sensitive or classified
materials, such as those labeled "Company Confidential," outside the company via e-mail or instant messenger. System configuration: Organizations should be able to determine which systems are out of
compliance with their official security policies and standards and take action to correct exposures. Only by implementing procedures and tools for enforcing policies through technology can an organization effectively and efficiently protect itself. Large Enterprise Environments
Larger enterprises with diverse, highly complex and distributed systems face special enforcement
challenges such as:
Large, complex networks: Large enterprise may manage thousands of systems distributed around
the globe. Naturally, the size and distribution of the network has a direct impact on the ability to enforce policy. Systems are often very difficult to access and review due to their physical location and/or network access controls (e.g., firewall rules). Large numbers of workers: Large organizations may have thousands or even tens of thousands of
workers, including full-time employees, consultants, contractors and vendors. This makes it very difficult to ensure every employee has read the policies, standards and understands those that apply to them. Heterogeneity: Chief security officers, IT directors and managers are usually responsible for
enforcing compliance across a heterogeneous environment – different operating systems, database management systems, web servers and other technologies. In large enterprises, security officers must establish processes and technologies that provide leverage – the ability to address the enterprise with few resources. In-house Expertise
Many organizations lack the required expertise for policy enforcement, especially on a scale large enough
to perform the work necessary. As a result, they may have to hire expensive consultants to develop and
facilitate the process. Key areas of expertise include:
Policy and standards development: It is difficult to create realistic and effective policies and
standards without experience and in-depth knowledge. Developing policies from scratch can be very time-consuming and frustrating. Moreover, it is a highly political process that involves numerous stakeholders – executive (read CEO) sponsorship, careful wordsmithing, thorough review and approval, and aggressive "promotion" of policies are keys to success. Proactive Security Policy Enforcement: A Practical Approach 3 IT security assessments: Performing detailed security assessments with native tools, open source or
cheap utilities, or vulnerability assessment products typically require a significant amount of security expertise that may not be available or affordable from in-house staff. Securing systems: Whether hardening a Unix server or configuring a firewall to prohibit
unauthorized web use, securing systems requires significant technical expertise. Organization should seek solutions that minimize the amount of knowledge required for the task. Tools should include knowledge and features that facilitate quick deployments and are based on existing industry standards such as ISO17799. Proactive Enforcement via Policy Management Lifecycle
By viewing policy enforcement from the perspective of a continuous life cycle, companies can organize
their efforts based on four key areas: policy establishment, education, enforcement and evaluation.
Known as the four E's of the policy enforcement lifecycle, these stages provide a mature policy
management process that can be automated, repeatable and measurable.
1. Establish policies: Companies need the capability to establish policies that drive efficiency and limit
risk. Since many companies do not have policy expertise internally, solutions should include "best practices" content that can be easily implemented by novice users. Solutions should also offer content that is specific to "policy rich" industries such as financial services and healthcare. 2. Educate workers: Organizations need to communicate policies and standards to the people
responsible for enforcing and complying with them. Once communicated, it is important to certify that users understand and accept the policies that govern them. Solutions should be able to educate workers on a large scale, without overwhelming each worker with content. Key to success includes making policies role specific – a staff accountant should read a different set of policies than a Windows administrator, although there may be some overlap. 3. Enforce policies: Organizations need to enforce policies for both people and technology. People
behavior must be monitored and restricted in some cases such as controlling web browsing, e-mail and instant messaging to ensure users are not violating acceptable use, information classification and handling, and other policies. Technology enforcement focuses on technical security settings on key platforms such as Windows, Unix, NetWare, and iSeries as well as mission critical applications such as databases and web servers. 4. Evaluate compliance: Organizations need to assess compliance with security policies for people
and technology as well. All personnel must read and agreed to abide by security policies and standards that apply to them. There must also be some kind of system that alerts operators when workers attempt to bypass acceptable usage, information classification and related policies. Technologies, in turn, must be routinely evaluated for compliance with corporate security policies and standards. Compliance assessment is used to evaluate current effectiveness and may lead to changes or improvements in procedures that help to enforce policies. While each of these stages is described separately, they should not be viewed as distinct. Each is dependent on the others. Establishing policies is senseless without educating and enforcing them. Doing so would be a waste of paper. Moreover, policies (along with standards and guidelines) should be "living breathing" documents, which are maintained based on routine evaluations for both compliance and effectiveness.

Proactive Security Policy Enforcement: A Practical Approach 5 1. Establish policies: For security officers, establishing policies means more than just technical
configuration standards. They must include business rules that guide both human behavior and machine settings. VigilEnt Policy Center from NetIQ provides a complete enterprise-class solution for creating policies, distributing them for review, tracking comments and approvals, and publishing them online for easy access. These policies may include, but are not limited to: Security configuration standards to properly secure the technology infrastructure including Windows, Unix, iSeries, web servers and databases Acceptable use policies aimed at prohibiting illicit web browsing, downloading or uploading inappropriate files, and other dangerous web and instant messenger activities Information classification and handling designed to prohibit the transmission of sensitive corporate information such as trade secrets, business plans and others VigilEnt Policy Center improves efficiency by Don't just take our word for it… speeding the creation of policies with the content libraries that incorporate the latest in leading NetIQ is not the only one advocating a practice standards and wording. Not only does multi-pronged approach for managing VigilEnt Policy Center ship with extensive and enforcing security policies. policy content from Charles Cresson WoodCISSP, organized by ISO 17799, but also Charles Cresson Wood, author of content modules for GLBA, HIPAA and FDA 21 Information Security Policies Made Easy, agrees that policy management should be treated as a process where organizations VigilEnt Policy Center also provides a facility "move away from viewing policy for distributing policies for review, obtaining development and/or update as a project." comments and approvals, and publishing the According to Wood, the process should final version. All versions are archived and include periodically assessing of tracked, providing a complete audit trail of all compliance and routine policy-based policies and other content ever issued. 2. Educate workers: Once policies are established,

Company and Its Assets, argues for a 3- VigilEnt Policy Center communicates policies to step process that includes (1) establishing employees, business partners, and others policies that are very specific on the according to their roles and responsibilities via rights and obligations of employees, (2) an Internet browser. VigilEnt Policy Center training and awareness seminars for provides a straightforward but highly effective employees and (3) enforcement via approach for communicating policies and technical means such as monitoring and verifying users have read and agreed to abide by filtering software. Workers login to the VigilEnt Policy Center through a web browser using (in most organizations) their corporate network user accounts (e.g. Active Directory user accounts). VigilEnt Policy Center presents users with policies that apply only to their specific roles. For example, VigilEnt Policy Center may present a system administrator with the Windows security configuration standards and the acceptable use policy. 1 Author of Information Security Policies Made Easy. Proactive Security Policy Enforcement: A Practical Approach 6 Users read the appropriate policies and check a box that indicates their agreement. This digital signature satisfies due diligence for accountability and compliance. Users can also be made to take quizzes on selected policies to ensure they have read and understand them providing additional evidence of accountability and compliance. Thus, VigilEnt Policy Center not only saves considerable time and effort in the development and communication of policies, it also tracks compliance in terms of securing agreements to abide by policies. This helps limit security and legal risks while ensuring compliance with regulations required of key stakeholders. 3. Enforce policies: VigilEnt Security Manager and Marshal products from NetIQ provide an effective
and efficient means to enforce many policies and standards such as: Security configuration standards are enabled with VigilEnt Security Manager's built in knowledge base to manage Windows, Unix, Linux, NetWare, iSeries (AS/400s), web servers and databases. Acceptable use policies are enforced with NetIQ MailMarshalMarshal products that prevent illicit web browsing, downloading or uploading inappropriate files, and other dangerous activities. Information classification controls are enforced by preventing the transmission of sensitive corporate information such as trade secrets, business plans and others based on key words, phrases and labels (e.g., "Company Sensitive" or "Top Secret"). VigilEnt Security Manager and the Marshal products improve efficiency by centralizing the management of system configurations, enforcing content security in real-time, saving employee ti e by reducing spam, and conserving network bandwidth and system-processing power by limiting the non-business use. VigilEnt Security Manager and the Marshal products also limit risk by ensuring that systems are configured in a way that limits security exposure and controlling employee use of tools like email, web and instant messenger in a manner that results in legal or security exposure. 4. Evaluate compliance: VigilEnt Policy Center, VigilEnt Security Manager and the Marshal products
provide powerful and rapid report creation to continuously evaluate the effectiveness of policy enforcement. VigilEnt Policy Center, for example, provides management reports to monitor and report on users, policies, quizzes, and policy violations. Security officers can easily run reports to identify employees or groups that have or have not read policies and how well they understand them. Security officers can then send follow up e-mails through VigilEnt Policy Center to remind employees that have failed to read policies or pass quizzes. Security check-up (compliance) reports through VigilEnt Security Manager provide analysis of how policies have been adopted across the technology infrastructure of the organization. VigilEnt Security Manager provides a mechanism to score systems, as well as consolidate scores at hierarchical levels to evaluate departments, business units or the entire enterprise. NetIQ Marshal products provide reports that reveal patterns of how employees may be abusing email, web and/or instant messaging services. Reports can be used to identify trends and take appropriate action to revise or enhance policies and procedures. 2 For Exchange or SMTP-based e-mail servers. Proactive Security Policy Enforcement: A Practical Approach 7 Together, VigilEnt Policy Center, VigilEnt Security Manager and the Marshal products improve efficiency and reduce risk by enabling security professionals to quickly measure the effectiveness of existing policies and enforcement and identify trends and issues that may need attention or further action.
