Here's a workshop that will help IBM customers understand their threat levels, compliance or audit issues as well as how to prioritise these security requirements.
An information security breach ends up impacting service, costs and, more importantly, the company's image. Keeping in mind this problem faced by its clients, IBM has decided to offer an IT security assessment workshop, customised for its existing and potential Indian customers, which will help organisations assess their current security positions.They will be able to identify the areas within their organisations that pose a security risk, and will be able to develop a practical risk mitigation strategy aligned to their business growth objectives. IBM will organise the half-day workshop at the qualifying customers' premises, free of charge.
According to the company, this security workshop will address an organisation's concerns about its security infrastructure. It will help them understand their threat, compliance or audit issues and how to prioritise these security requirements by determining the interdependency of these security needs.
The assessment workshop includes comprehensive coverage of all information security management facets, including infrastructure and network security; Internet/intranet access and security; application software security; governance structure, security incident response and management; virus protection and data encryption.
According to the company, the workshop will incorporate IBM tools, best practices and templates to develop an IT security strategic roadmap customised to each customer's business needs.
To qualify for the assessment, customers will need to send their nomination request to the IBM Security Assessment team for review and selection for the workshop. For more details, log on to http://www-304.ibm.com/businesscenter/smb/uk/en/thinktank
