IT Security Standards: Serious Business!

Safe, Secure Data for Your Organization.

Whether your business is global, regional or local, your business strategy must include a security component and comply with relevant standards, including industry standard information security, web application security, data security, security penetration testing, application security standards and interface standards. Some businesses must also enforce legal compliance standards or comply with government and industry regulations like HIPPA and Sarbanes-Oxley and depending on your industry and country, there may be specific, uniform standards like India’s GIGW and CERTIN.



Every organization must consider the competitive market and the changing dynamics of technical and business environment frameworks and the security of business data, proprietary and confidential information and data entrusted to the business by customers, suppliers and partners.

Web application security and application security and standards compliance relates to internal business information like business strategy, proprietary data, pricing data, HR data, financial data, personnel and other critical information used to support and manage the organization. Application Security and a vulnerability assessment are critical to protect data managed or used by the business in interaction with stakeholders, collaborators or service providers. No matter the source or purpose of the information, a business must protect data, and ensure privacy or it might lose a critical business advantage. Poor application and information security can result in legal action against the organization. Security threats can come from inside or outside the enterprise and the implications can be devastating to the business, causing damage to reputation and threatening legal, financial and ethical integrity.
