 Hi Theresa,

 We’re about a year ahead of you in this process it seems—like you,
security was primarily a network function with AV handled by a server
support team.

 In brief, our office (InfoSec) will provide "application layer" support,
including access permissions, for our InfoSec Tools. Our net/infrastructure
teams will provide hardware and OS-level support for the tools.

 At this point in time we’re continue to work very closely together and
since positions have been shifted from other teams to form the group, this
is happening gradually with the above as an end  goal.

 Feel free to ping me if you’d like to talk about more specific details.

Subject: [SECURITY] Reorganizing for security team

We are finally at a point where we can reorganize to create a separate
security team.  Security is now primarily on the network team, with AV
systems and the like on a technical architecture team.

 Those of you who have created a separate security team can help us out.
What tasks (like firewall installation, firewall rule updates, SIEM
implementation, etc.) are done on what team?  What belongs to networks,
what belongs to systems, and what belongs to security? How did you
architect the separation of duties?

Thanks for all insight -
