Part of the ITSec is governance under the office of the CIO and the
other operational under IT. All risks are operational and are only go to
CIO/IT Director when escalated depending on your companies risk matrix
(probability and impact to the organization) and type of risk, such as
strategic risks, and SOX risks. The best to address this is through a
Governance IT Security and Risk Management committee.

Subject: best place for IT Security team in the company organisation

Hi All
In my company , there is a issue regarding the ITSEC Team place in the
company organisation. We have IT Department with telecoms & network
division, Applications development Division, and Business process
Initially, the ITSEC team is rattached directly to Director of the IT
Department office. But now, some people want the Security Team to be
splited as follow in two :
 - strategy, BCP & policies rattached to IT Director office or the
Vice-president office
-  and security operations (only Firewall admin, VPN implementation and
admin)  rattached to the telecoms and network Division.

Could you advice me on the issue..... some best practices...

thank you
