Security Program Governance
Most organizations have come to realize that cyber security is a persistent business risk. But as the frequency and costs of data breaches continue to climb, it has become clear that IT security programs are lacking, and critical information security processes, technologies and staffing needs are not being met.
With effective security program governance, Forsythe helps companies establish proactive security strategies and ensure that they have the people, processes and technologies in place to secure their data, their intellectual property and their brand.
With best-in-class technology solutions, expert advisory services, managed services and customized testing in our state-of-the-art technology evaluation center (TEC) we help you understand the scope and components of a comprehensive approach to security, and establish a repeatable, measurable program that helps to develop business relevance. We work to ensure your organization’s long-term security by helping you evaluate your current security state and develop an actionable roadmap to an optimized state that is based on strategic business objectives.
Key focus areas include:
Many organizations continue to use compliance as a guide to IT security. This leads IT teams to focus on checking boxes rather than thinking about security strategy; as soon as they accomplish their goal of compliance, they stop thinking about security and move on. Compliance does not equal security. It is a minimum requirement, and is not enough to protect an organization from the strategies and tactics used by hackers today.
Forsythe helps you develop proactive security strategies that focus on the assets that need protection and align them with specific business risks. We offer a full range of advisory services including security program, development, compliance readiness, and incident response and threat assessments to help you set policy and develop a cohesive approach to prevention, detection and response.
Governance Risk & Compliance
Enterprises continue to struggle with questions about how to identify, prioritize and structure their IT governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) efforts. Forsythe partners with the leading providers of GRC platforms that support business-level management of these initiatives. With GRC, Forsythe helps you adapt each product to your requirements, build your own applications and integrate with other systems without touching code. In addition to the leading GRC solutions, we offer expert GRC maturity assessments and various security compliance assessments.
