Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM) sits above your existing security tooling, ensuring that all controls are fully operational and all assets are protected.

It provides visibility of all of your assets, users, applications and databases, as well as the confidence that controls are working effectively. This enables a trusted, unified view across business lines, regions and technology platforms.

How does Continuous Controls Monitoring work?

CCM automatically and continuously consumes data from sources across your security, IT and business domains. 

By unifying all of your data, it can identify previously unknown or unmanaged assets and control coverage gaps in real-time.

It then substantiates that insight through automated reports. These can be segmented by market, business unit or service line and mapped to your goals and structure, providing business context for security metrics.

How does Continuous Controls Monitoring work?

Continuous Controls Monitoring is a step-by-step process

The first step is to integrate all of your existing tools in order to automatically collect, normalise and model asset and controls data across the enterprise.

This data is used to build accurate inventories that enhance the CMDB and identify missing controls.

You can then analyse whether your controls are operating within internal SLAs and adhering to framework standards such as NIST, CIS, or PCI. With this in place, it’s possible to continuously monitor and measure controls and risks, allowing enterprises to substantiate regulatory compliance.

Continuous Controls Monitoring is a step-by-step process

Many well-known security incidents appear to have a common pattern. They are not the results of some hitherto unknown vulnerability or controls weakness. Rather, the controls that would have stopped them were thought to be present and operational but were not - just when they were most needed.
Phil Venables, Board Director, Risk & Security, Goldman Sachs, 2019

Why is Continuous Controls Monitoring essential?

Controls can be ineffective for many reasons:

  • They were never fully deployed when purchased
  • Incomplete or incorrect implementation or configuration
  • A user or part of the business failed to install an update or patch
  • Problems with the network, licensing or authorisations

CCM can measure your controls coverage against trusted inventories to find and fill these gaps. And effortlessly cross-reference the performance of controls against internal SLAs and multiple security frameworks.

How Continuous Controls Monitoring helps

automate reporting

Jim Doggett, former Chief Technology Risk Officer at AIG and Panaseer Board Advisor, discusses how CCM can make stakeholder reporting more accurate and less time-consuming.
