Excelory’s Information Security Management offering comprises of a wide range of services, from simple consultation to the complete planning and implementation of a full-fledged ISMS (Information Security Management System) for your organization. We offer services not just limited to IT Security (which is Information Security when applied to Technology), but Information Security in its holistic sense – irrespective of the type of your business and regardless of whether your information is stored in electronic or physical form.
The chief objective of information security management is to implement the appropriate measurements in order to eliminate or minimize the impact that various security related threats and vulnerabilities might have on your organization. Implementing ISMS gives you the ability to minimize damages and losses, safeguard business continuity, ensure legal compliance, have a competitive edge, and build a respected organizational image.
Any organization, whether it makes use of information technology or not, must address basic information security requirements that include the following:
- Management, Planning and Organization of Information Security
- Business Process Evaluation and Risk Management
- Protection of Information Assets
- Infrastructure and Operational Practices
- Human Resource Security Management
- Security Incident Management
- Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
Further, organizations that make use of information technology must also satisfy information security requirements related to the following:
- Business Applications Security Management
- Systems Development, Implementation, and Maintenance Controls
- Computer Installations Management
- Network & Traffic Management
- Internal & External User Environment Management
Further, as with all management processes, an ISMS must remain effective and efficient in the long run, continually adapting to changes external as well as internal to the organization. We help ensure the continuity of ISMS in your organization through the application of the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) approach as prescribed by the International Organization for Standardization.
Information Security is essential to organizations of all sizes. It is often overlooked by organizations, particularly those in industries that do not have strict regulatory requirements. However, ignoring information security in any organization is more often a matter of ignorance than of being inapplicable. Whether you do business online or not, information security is of utmost importance. Depending on the nature of your business, improper information security management, or its lack thereof, can be one of the differentiating factors between business profitability and bankruptcy.
The establishment, maintenance and continuous update of an ISMS provide a strong indication that a company is using a systematic approach for the identification, assessment and management of information security risks, and doing its best to safeguard the CIA triangle comprising of the core principles of information security, viz. confidentiality, integrity and availability. This contributes to the attraction and retention of customers who feel secure about the services you offer, thereby fuelling business growth.
