||TIS THE SEASON FOR SCRUTINIZING INFORMATION SECURITY
As CEO of NCX Group, I wish you and your family a joyful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year.
Today’s economic environment has businesses and organizations facing some very difficult challenges and decisions regarding their budget and direction. Information Risk Management must be a top priority, more so today than ever before. After all, one breach today, coupled with the expenses incurred from notification, legal activities and mitigation, might be a company-ending event. You can’t afford to make a mistake.
As a result of necessary cuts, many organizations are demanding that departments affecting security, IT and compliance groups do more with less. Your approach to obtaining the right services and expertise has never been more important than it is right now.
So the $64,000,000 question is, “How do I meet security compliance requirements and protect my information assets?” Most information security reviews we conduct find vulnerabilities due to misconfiguration of assets, lack of processes and controls, insecure web applications or misguided procedures. It is critical that you don’t take your eyes off of the “basics” in securing your information during these times. A simple, cost effective network vulnerability assessment or a web application test will go a long way in meeting most of your information risk management needs during these difficult times.
As you plan ahead for 2009, I would like to offer you an hour of our time to discuss your information risk management goals and compliance challenges. I know my team of professionals can assist you in meeting these goals and can provide the expertise you need for these projects. One of our specialties is getting more done with less.
