Security Knowledge in Practice implementation

Hello, I am currently a student at the University of Advancing Technology and I am learning about security implementation frameworks this week. I was looking into a framework named Security Knowledge in Practice (SKiP) and I noticed some things about the framework and I wonder if anyone who has implemented it would agree. The Good: 1. Very high level, and could probably work for anyone. 2. Covers the main steps of securing a network quite well. 3. The "Improve the System" Step insures that the security of a network will change with the threats over time. The Bad: 1. Very high level, most of the advice is useless to someone who doesn't already know how to secure a network. 2. If a new system admin attempted to follow the "Respond" step, more bad than good would probably happen. 3. The "Prepare" step is quite superfluous as it is the first step in hardening any network anyway. Overall it is a solid framework, but if I was a new network administrator looking for guidance on how to secure a network I don't think I would use it. Honestly, it is just to high level and security is too fine grain. If anyone has had success converting this framework into a implementable framework, how did you accomplish this? Thanks.

    It is converted with a lot of work and based on solid experience with the components of the network that you need to secure. No one can tell you how to do it unless you provide a detailed topology of the network showing its hardware along with a description of the services and applications that are accessed over it. (And then you should expect to pay for the response.) . Run a Google search for something like [ implementation SKiP Security Knowledge in Practice ] to start getting an idea. One thing you'll eventually find will be multi-day courses costing $2000US and more that begin training in implementation. . It isn't something you'll learn how to do in general forum postings. You begin learning by paying attention in class and by testing in lab environments. . Books are written (and sold) about your question. It's a hard fact of life, but the knowledge can sometimes seem more like an art than a science. And the science part is constantly changing. It's not easy giving the knowledge away when it's the foundation of a livelihood. That's especially true when so much of the details will apply to specific hardware and software. . Tom
