In today's environment, security and risk management have become critical to the well-being of our nation. The CenturyLink Team has been—and will continue to be—an industry leader in working with your agency to meet this national priority. We have implemented a hierarchy of controls and management tools in the areas of personnel, systems and facility security, each of which are governed by a comprehensive set of security policies, standards and guidelines.
CenturyLink's extensive experience has shown that, in light of today's ever-changing climate of threats and vulnerabilities, a sound security position is best maintained by adopting a holistic view of risk management. This enterprise-wide approach to risk management, and more specifically, security practices, calls for:
- Centralized authority and policymaking
- Clear lines of communication
- Well-defined expectations
- Close collaboration among all parties
