Business information risk management advice available via telephone and email from expert risk management professionals and business continuity fellows.

Newport Beach, CA — June 2, 2009 — NCX Group, a leading information risk management consulting firm, today announced the expansion of its MyCSO (My Chief Security Officer) Services to include MyCSO Advisor, a one-on-one telephone and email-based advisory program relating to Information Security, Business Continuity, Incident Response, as well as regulatory compliance.

“MyCSO Advisor is a perfect support option to assist in addressing today’s information risk and compliance requirements,” said Mike Fitzpatrick, CEO of NCX Group. “For a price as low as $995 per year, every business can get objective and knowledgeable advice to assist them in making the most educated decisions involving their information risk. A ‘second set of eyes’ from experienced consultants can be invaluable to validate a decision or possibly expose areas not considered.”

According to Fitzpatrick, the increased focus on information risk management by President Obama and his administration will make ISO security standards and meeting regulatory requirements such as PCI, FISMA HIPAA, GLBA, and SOX more critical than ever before. “MyCSO Advisor expands the scope and value of our MyCSO outsourced risk management services to assist organizations in proactively managing their business information risk,” Fitzpatrick added. “Businesses are facing some very difficult decisions in this tough economic climate and the slightest misstep in executing an organization’s information risk management plan could be very costly. With MyCSO Advisor, business leaders can have access to the resources they need when making decisions that impact their company’s risk and well-being.”

NCX Group’s MyCSO embraces three levels of outsourced information risk management services that reduce the cost of in-house capabilities:
