Brief description of the product

  • The method MARION (Methodology of Analysis of Computer Risks Directed by Levels) arises from the CLUSIF, http://www.clusif.asso.fr, and the last update was performed in 1998. It is based on a methodology of audit, which, as its name indicates, allows for estimating the level of IT security risks of a company through balanced questionnaires giving indicators in the form of notes on various subjects relative to security. The objective of the method is to obtain a vision of the company with regard to a level considered "correct", and on the other hand with regard to companies having already answered the same questionnaire. The level of security is estimated according to 27 indicators distributed in 6 large subjects, each of them assigns a grade between 0 and 4. The level 3 is the level to be reached to ensure a security considered as correct. At the conclusion of this analysis, a more detailed analysis of risk is carried out to identify the risks (threats and vulnerabilities) that face the company.
    Note: The CLUSIF does not sponsor this method anymore, as MARION is replaced by MEHARI. However, MARION is still used by various companies
