An overview of the existing security management software programs for computer systems and the risks of operating with a security management system that is not up to standard. This paper also reviews the security management systems that are currently being developed, keeping up with the dynamic pace of the computer world.

From the Paper:

"The new standards as given in the recent security documentation methods provide some guidance, yet these methods do not guide the security officers engaged in the job. When the data is collected in the traditional formats, they may not provide good security, as most of this data will have to be regularly updated. There have been suggestions that a security officer with a database and GUIs may provide better security. This requires an improvement of the information system and the secure items have to be presented in a standard format. There are security officers even now, but they are involved with only security and their job is to check that systems are being implemented correctly. On the other hand, they should try to view the business risk due to security flaws and request for changes in the system from the point of view of better security.
To make this judgment, there is a requirement for assessment of risk and that is a time consuming job. Thus most of the concerned people prefer to work with more simplified models of the system and ask for estimates of risk from IT employees, which are subjective. In a complex system, this is not possible and is dangerous when the defects in information can cause harm to the organization in terms of money. This means that security officers should be ready with convincing documents to support views of their risk if the system fails due to any reason. Thus it is clear that security officers in organizations should be able to understand the importance of proper methods, but no system does that at present."
