First off you need to decide why you actually need an infosec consultancy. Is it because the work can't be done in-house? Or there are confidentiality issues? Or someone at the golf course just mentioned how their infosec team can sort out all of your problems?

Similarities and differences between ISO 27001 and BS 25999-2

June 08, 2010 Added by:Dejan Kosutic

At first glance, information security and business continuity don’t have much in common – some would add that the only similarity is that they are both about IT.Information security management is best defined in the International standard ISO/IEC 27001, while business continuity management is defined in the British standard BS 25999-2 – therefore, if we want to compar...

Data-centric security

June 06, 2010 Added by:Eli Talmor

IT security professionals engaged in a game of cat and mouse with hackers as fast as they deploy security countermeasures, these rogue elements discover loopholes or entirely new avenues of attack. Traditional security methods have relied upon closely guarding the perimeter of a company's network.

Why Enterprise Rights Management software should work on all operating system platforms

June 01, 2010 Added by:Peter Abatan

Google’s decision to start moving away from the Windows operating system because of its vulnerabilities in my opinion represents a seismic shift in the IT industry.

Information security policy – how detailed should it be?

May 26, 2010 Added by:Dejan Kosutic
