[A.M.O.S.] Asset Management on Steroids
Executive Sponsor: Scott Pettigrew, VP, Chief Information Officer, HMS
Project Team: Scot Miller, Vice President, CISO, Kory Anderson, Manager, Security Operations, Sidd Kunche, Sr. IT Project Manager

Identity is the foundation of security. Without identifying the assets in their institution, leaders are forced to make generalized assumptions to apply security as a blanket instead of using a risk-based approach. An oversimplified view of asset management establishes a CMDB (Configuration Management Database), but AMOS (Asset Management on Steroids) goes beyond this by ensuring consistency of information for risk management, business operations reporting, and procurement services. This is not a “one-and-done” project. AMOS is a program that forces groups to document their processes, eliminate information silos, and establish standards. Ultimately, HMS will lower risk, save money, and meet compliance objectives.

US Bank take steps every day to be the most trusted choice in their industry, and that commitment extends to their information security efforts. The Process Alignment and Risk Management Enhancements (PARE) project sought to mature the Information Security program and create a more robust control set. The project started with a pilot of high risk processes in which US Bank identified the need to be more granular at the process level and the need to work hand in hand with the oversight teams. The objective of the PARE project was to document information security processes, risks, and controls and align to the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF). NIST CSF was used in order to define program completeness.
