Gap analysis – a security tool you need to use at least once a year

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

It’s important to note that the gap analysis is not a one time activity. Each organization should execute a gap analysis of its cybersecurity approximately once per year and draw upon the results to adjust cybersecurity activities to meet new regulatory or compliance requirements or simply growth of the organization and its supporting information technology infrastructure.

From the book Cyberwar, Cyberterror, Cybercrime by Julie Mehan

Today’s Word of the Day is gap analysis.  I think Dr. Mehan is the only expert I’ve read who says “do a gap analysis once a year.”  I love it.
