For the Information Security team at the University of Kansas Medical Center, immediate, short-term results and impacts have included better understood roles and engagement in protecting the organization and helping to achieve the mission; deeper levels of trust, cooperation, understanding, and overall effectiveness; a better approach to intake, response, and follow-up, improving stakeholder relationships and getting the right solutions for customers; and gaps identified during the process resulting in action plans, funding opportunities, and deep alignment to the business.
The situation behind why the University of Kansas Medical Center decided to use the cybersecurity tools as part of its self-assessment and improvement initiative is explored as a success story on the NIST website. The lessons the organization learned and its next steps provide a model for other organizations interested in transforming and safeguarding their electronic information security.
“The Information Security team at the University of Kansas Medical Center is using the Baldrige Cybersecurity Excellence Builder as a framework for self-assessment and program development. The BCEB is a powerful tool, especially when used in conjunction with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. I don’t think that it’s overly dramatic to say that we’re going to transform our Information Security Program through this process.”
Steffani Webb, Vice Chancellor for Administration
