Identifying potential vulnerabilities and assessing best practices should be on the top of any corporation or institution that allows for the connecting and sharing of data. Connecticut College, one of the most selective liberal arts schools in the nation, is a leader in providing access for all students and faculties to produce, share and develop their creativity while taking the appropriate steps to safeguard and ensure the reliability of their computing environment.

At Connecticut College, we are always working to ensure that we provide the best possible access and reliability of our computing networks for the faculty, students and business partners

igxglobal, a leading information security integrator, announces their efforts to assist Connecticut College with the safeguarding of their intellectual property and data by signing an agreement to offer quarterly technical assessment services.

The igxglobal assessment consultative service allows clients to identify if they are meeting the regularity and best practice guidelines for securing the confidentiality and integrity of all electronic information that passes to and from their data networks. It’s important for all organizations and especially in the education field, to demonstrate that they have taken reasonable steps to protect against anticipated attacks or threats to their confidential and personal information. Data that can be compromised or open to the possibility of improperly being disclosed threatens the integrity and reliability of any computing environment. Furthermore the expectations of availability and accessibility are key factors for all organizations that promote, allow and utilize their data networks to perform daily functions and services.

“At Connecticut College, we are always working to ensure that we provide the best possible access and reliability of our computing networks for the faculty, students and business partners,” said Brian Walsh, Connecticut College’s Information Security Officer, “Designing a system right the first time is key component of those efforts, however in the dynamic world that we work in, it is equally important that we take the appropriate pro-active steps and measure how well we are sustaining that level of reliability and protection in order to truly have an effective data reliability and integrity strategy.”

The igxglobal assessment services assist Connecticut College with their data integrity strategy. By working directly with the staff and IT professionals, igxglobal is leading the efforts to analyze risk and make recommendations to reduce threats. “Any organization can simply run scans and react to statistics and data; however to truly gain reliability and value from the efforts to thwart potential attacks, you need to address all aspects of the computing environment and offer a comprehensive approach”, said Thomas Duffy, igxglobal President & CEO.

The igxglobal approach is about looking at people, process and systems to make experience and educated decisions about how to help companies compete, share data and meet the regulatory and responsible requirements that we all have in our connected data environments. Addressing issues from access, to bandwidth management, reliability, disaster avoidance and integrity are all components of the assessment services that igxglobal offers their clients and business partners.
