Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2006
NCX Group, a leading integrated business risk management consulting firm, today announced the availability of MyCSO, a service providing IT oversight and guidance for small to medium-sized companies. MyCSO enables executives to have more control over their IT security operations without having to hire a CSO (Chief Executive Officer) full time.
Based on a security framework with clear roles and responsibilities, MyCSO applies segregation of duties to IT functions for optimum security and legislative compliance. "Companies are finding that placing all data security responsibilities under the control of a few IT individuals is creating serious problems for management in the area of regulatory compliance and operational performance," said Mike Fitzpatrick, president and CEO of NCX Group. "MyCSO provides the necessary oversight for IT security functions allowing management the flexibility they need to truly mitigate risk and focus on running their business."
Through the services of MyCSO, NCX Group becomes a company’s ongoing expert security advisor to establish policies and strategic direction for securing an enterprise. MyCSO includes services such as Strategic Security Planning; Policy and Procedures Development Consulting; Monthly Penetration Testing and Trending; Log Review, Process Review and Firewall Review; Security Vendor Evaluation and Selection; Incident Response Services; and Monthly Strategic Meetings.
MyCSO begins with a complete threat matrix to identify any lapses in security. Executives are continually updated and receive unbiased reports describing all areas of weakness so that needed changes or actions can be taken to protect company data. "Many companies rely on their internal IT staff to make sure security has been met," said Fitzpatrick. "But because smaller departments do not typically have security professionals on staff, many critical areas are not addressed. With MyCSO, owners and executives can be confident that their company’s state of security is at its highest at all times."
