SecureState uses a multiphase process for developing and implementing MSBs. First, SecureState reviews any existing MSBs or creates an initial MSB draft. SecureState then collaborates with the client’s IT department to create a final version of the MSB. Once a final version is created, the IT department implements the MSB, including new base images used to create new systems.
Once the MSBs are in place, SecureState highly recommends testing the system by performing a Host Interrogation and Configuration Review, which can validate if the MSBs are being applied correctly. The MSB will be improved based on this review of emerging threats and changes in the environment.
Finally, SecureState recommends the client create a program that continuously updates and improves the MSB. SecureState can assist in setting up this program and establishing a repeating cycle for future updates. It is critical to repeat these steps on a regular basis to ensure MSBs stay current and relevant.
