Principal
IT Risk Management Framework
Executive Sponsor: Meg Anderson, AVP & CISO, Principal Financial Group
Project Team: Anita Hartman, Tim Peterson, Kim Herren, Loren Long, Mark Vernon, Abby Martin, Deidre Lane, Terri Poortinga and Eric Ware.
Location: Des Moines, IA

A variety of disparate tools and manual processes had been used to accomplish critical Information Security functions including: managing security policy/related variances, security assessments, supplier security profiles, compliance reporting. This resulted in uncorrelated data and an inability to cohesively report risk. The manual processing wasted time, and it was difficult for businesses to know where to initiate and monitor progress of our services. We implemented an IT Risk Management Framework to ensure data is stored in a single location and to provide cohesive reporting. The solution incorporates a workflow process, which streamlines submissions, eliminates manual work and enables better tracking.
