It’s the 21st century – your cyber-security assessments cannot afford the “one and done” approach of yesterday.
Modern information systems, comprised in large part by computer networks, contain a myriad of intertwined technologies – databases, applications, networking devices, web services and email just to name a few. All of these technologies are provided by diverse platforms at various release levels. Throw human users with varying roles and privileges into the mix and the resulting level of complexity makes an effective information security program an imposing challenge. Businesses are feeling the pressure of meeting the needs for global connectivity, e-commerce transactions, and online business-to-business communications while maintaining security programs to protect their information assets. Privileged account control, patch management, configuration management, and data backup are some of the hurdles to be cleared.
