Background to SECTARA
SECTARA (Security Threat And Risk Assessor) was created for consultants and corporate security managers frustrated with the lack of advanced security risk assessment (specific) tools. Performing assessment using MS Office products, in particular, can be a tedious process, plagued by styling/formatting problems, layout selection and the routine need for reverse engineering to assure logic throughout.
Such methods are not particularly collaborative, present data security concerns and often drift beyond the bounds of recommended standards and their methodologies (because we are all human).
Moreover, enterprise risk systems are necessarily generic and security risk practitioner’s needs are very specific.
It’s also difficult to get IT and expenditure approval for internally hosted systems, especially ones that are not core business.
SECTARA was developed in response to those problems, providing a security risk assessment and management environment in which best practice for the industry is within easy reach and available at an affordable cost.
Methodologies detailed within leading global security standards have been accounted for within the system, in a way that addresses the needs of the most advanced practitioners, but also keeps it simple for those new to the trade.
