While a vulnerability assessment and security measures are a great first step in securing a network, the truth is that companies also have to look ahead.
Duluth, GA (Vocus) April 13, 2010
As part of a new program designed to increase vulnerability protection, Guidance Consulting now offers information security team management. This latest branch of their IT consulting services, one of many plans the company has recently developed in an attempt to meet increased demand, is meant to enhance the operations and productivity of an IT team either currently in existence or just starting to form.
“What we're finding is that many companies already have an information security team in place, either built from an existing IT workforce or from new hires,” says Guidance Consulting senior consultant Daniel Gottilla. “And while many of these employees are highly trained individuals in the field of IT, there may be areas in which strengthening the team will strengthen the security of the company's IT network. That's what we want to accomplish.”
This kind of thinking aligns with what many corporations already know: a company's technology is only as strong as the people behind it. Because the field of information technology is one that is always changing and encountering new challenges (as viruses are developed and hackers find new ways to infiltrate IT systems), it's important to have a team of professionals who can stay on that edge.
“While a vulnerability assessment and security measures are a great first step in securing a network,” says Gottilla, “the truth is that companies also have to look ahead. Oftentimes, that means having their own full-time employees working on IT security.”
As Guidance Consulting will be the first to tell you, managing those full-time employees can be a big job all on its own. That's why the new Information Security Team Management program promises to be one of the largest areas of focus for new and existing clients.
