Types of security controls

Several types of security controls can be implemented to protect hardware, software, networks, and data from actions and events that could cause loss or damage. One of the most straightforward models for classifying controls is by type: physical, technical, or administrative, and by function: preventative, detective, and corrective.

For example:

Types – Physical Technical Administrative

Functions- Preventive Detective Corrective

Implementation- Choose the appropriate combination of controls based on the specific security needs and risks of your organization.

Compliance- Ensure that security controls align with industry regulations and corporate policies.

Continuous Improvement- Regularly assess and update security controls to adapt to evolving threats and technologies. Remember, the effectiveness of a security strategy often lies in the combination and integration of various types of controls across physical, digital, cybersecurity, and cloud domains. Top of Form.
