Oxford, UK, 12th June 2006: Security specialist Vistorm today announced the launch of its Information Assurance appraisal. With IT security continuing to top the CXO agenda, the service promotes a strategic, business-oriented approach to safeguarding an organisation's information assets in a holistic fashion.
"Information Assurance and security projects have been placed at the forefront of government and enterprise procurement. The increase in external threats and the required shift in corporate governance and compliance have placed a heavy burden on businesses around the world," commented Dan Turner, general manager, Vistorm. "We offer an Information Assurance appraisal service, using in-house expertise to answer some of the key questions affecting these large organisations."
A national logistics company is one of the first companies to take advantage of the Vistorm service, through a full Information Assurance appraisal taking into account how people, processes, compliance issues and technology interact together to create potential organisational vulnerabilities.
Vistorm assessed the company's significant Information Assurance challenges and recommended the appropriate strategy to enable it to exploit and defend its information capital in the optimum way.
An Information Assurance Dashboard was produced giving executives a snapshot of their organisations Information Assurance status. The next stage of the project is to make the dashboard 'real-time' to help the enterprise better manage their security environment on an ongoing basis.
The ultimate aim of service is to end up with a set of information assets and service platforms that are available, reliable, accurate, secure and fit in with compliance regimes, whilst being directly aligned with the needs of the business.
