First to Combine Top-Down Business Risk Modeling With Bottom-Up IT Security Automation

Agiliance®, Inc., the leading independent provider of Security Risk Management (SRM) solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced that it will showcase its latest version of Agiliance RiskVision™ at next week’s Gartner® Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, Maryland. Agiliance, a silver sponsor of the summit, will be demonstrating a real-time way to manage enterprise risks by making them visible, measureable, and actionable for business, IT, and security operations alike.

With its new Security Risk Management (SRM) solution, Agiliance RiskVision connects a top-down, process-based approach to risk with a bottom-up, control-centric approach to security. Agiliance RiskVision also aggregates risk horizontally across functional areas to create a 360˚ view of risk for both the executive and the operational level. Based on its innovative character, Agiliance RiskVision just recently received the highest possible rating of five stars in SC Magazine group testing of risk management tools.

Sophisticated risk requirements, mounting regulatory compliance, and advanced persistent threats are making business-critical decisions that much more challenging. As a result, a causal understanding of how risk events affect business performance is needed. This understanding can be achieved through the implementation of Gartner’s latest research on risk-adjusted value chains (see “Developing Key Risk Indicators: Developing Causal Chains to Link Risk to Business Outcomes,” written by Paul E. Proctor and Michael Smith, Gartner, December 2010).

To actualize managing these value chains, Agiliance will demonstrate its SRM solution at booth #78, which is based on the Agiliance RiskVision platform. Leveraging SRM, organizations can deliver simple to comprehensive solutions covering risk domains, processes, remediation and intelligence, such as:

  • ISO 27005

Risk assessment targeted towards ISO 27001 certification, including risk treatment, risk acceptance, risk communication, and risk monitoring.

  • Business Continuity Plan for Cloud Environments

Risk assessment geared towards assessing risks associated with transitioning the IT environment to the cloud, associated threats and vulnerabilities, and their impact on the organization’s business continuity and service levels.

  • Security Policy

Monitor systems, applications, platforms, and acquisition targets against security policies and associated controls; create plans to counter these risks and manage risk acceptance.

  • Project Risk Management

Risk assessment to determine the catalog of risks associated with a project as well as identification of the impact on project progress, result, or outcome.

  • Organizational Risk Management

Define risk registers and apply these to all business units across the organization. This allows for frequent monitoring of the risk posture by organizational structure as well as provides an aggregate view of risk across the organization.

“Risk is the new compliance. The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit was selected to launch our fresh SRM approach,” said Joe Fantuzzi, chief executive officer and president at Agiliance. “A recent study by Unisphere Research revealed over 80% of IT professionals whose organizations suffered a data breach were unable to tell which IT assets were impacted, and nine out of 10 had no idea of the resulting cost. We delivered SRM to bring together business units, IT operations, and security operations to report on risk in real-time and identify optimal investments to effect a closed-loop and cost-effective organizational GRC program.”

The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit will be held at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Maryland (Washington, D.C. area) on June 20-23, 2011. The summit provides four complete programs that drill down on security, risk management, business continuity management, and CISO roles. Register with priority code SECAGI to save $300 on the standard rate of $2,150.
