About Operations Controls: 

Operations controls are the methods used to preserve operational security. These include resource protection, hardware controls, software controls, privileged-entity controls, media controls, and physical access controls.

Resource Protection: Resource protection is a safeguard from both loss and compromise, of an organization’s computing resources, such as hardware, software, and data that is owned and used by the organization. Resource protection is designed to decrease the level of impact that can result from the unauthorized access and/or alteration of data by limiting the opportunities for its misuse.

  • Hardware resources that require protection include communications devices such as routers, firewalls, gateways, switches, modems, and access servers; storage devices such as floppy disks, removable drives, external hard drives, tapes, and cartridges; processing systems such as file servers, mail servers, Internet servers, backup servers, and tape drives; standalone computers; and printers and fax machines.
  • Software resources that require protection include program libraries and source code; software application packages; and operating system software and systems utilities.
  • Data resources that require protection include backup data; user data files; password files; operating data directories; and system logs and audit trails.
