O Assuring Indemnification

While indemnification at first appears to be a process control, it does require interactions to be valid. Many times an indemnification control is as simple as a warning sign or banner promising to prosecute those who continue into unauthorized areas. However, before legal prosecution or insurance claims can be made, an interaction typically has to actually occur.

To use indemnification as a control, you must have disclaimers on all services intended only for authorized personnel. If these services are then used by others, this indemnifies the owner of any claims of loss or damage. It also requires full asset accounting of systems, services, protocols, and operational software.

The Risk Assessment Values from the OSSTMM can provide this accounting as well as a quantification of the security level as a metric. If provided by a certified auditor, the accounting may be certified itself, if necessary, for insurance or legal compliance.
