UK company Citicus Limited has entered into a partnership agreement with TeamInfoSec Ireland Limited to help organizations in Ireland and other parts of the world to measure and manage information risk and compliance using its award-winning Citicus ONE risk management software.
Announcing the partnership, Marco Kapp, co-founder of Citicus Limited says:
"We are delighted to be partnering with TeamInfoSec. We've been impressed with their enthusiasm, energy and drive and their track record in setting up information security management systems in Ireland, the Gulf states and elsewhere. Partnering with them gives our customers access to a highly motivated and experienced group of consultants they can draw on when devising or running their IT security / risk programmes. This is a key part of our delivering ground-breaking risk solutions round the world based on our award-winning Citicus ONE risk and compliance software."
Jared Carstensen, Managing Director of TeamInfoSec adds:
"As a leading information security consultancy, we know that it's impossible to build a good Information Security Management System (ISMS) without having a solid method of measuring risk, an efficient and business-oriented way of doing evaluations, and great reporting. Citicus seem to be ahead of the pack when it comes to delivering these key capabilities. Their software provides the standards and frameworks needed to assess compliance with good practice, its reporting is outstanding, and Citicus ONE scales very well - so supports implementations from the small to the largest. We're really looking forward to working with Citicus in building great security and risk management systems which are urgently needed now that IT is heart of social and economic activity."
Why is managing information risk important?
In the 'information age', it is vital that business managers understand the risks posed by information systems and keep them under control. Doing so is a requirement of good governance - which demands powerful processes for managing risk and for verifying compliance with good practice. It is also a matter of self-interest, given there's a high chance of business-critical systems 'going wrong' each year. This can be slashed by developing, using and running systems in line with good practice. Implementing Citicus ONE helps businesses motivate and equip people to achieve this goal.
What is Citicus ONE?
Citicus ONE is a web-based, risk management and compliance reporting system. It deals with information risk and compliance not as a series of one-off evaluations but via a coherent, continuing managed process, which can also be applied to other areas of risk.
The process enables companies to measure the risk posed by their critical systems efficiently and their compliance with good practice - in a business-oriented manner; and helps them manage risk down to a level that is acceptable to top management.
