Security assessment

Evaluate your current security posture to reduce risk

Companies today are often unaware of just how vulnerable they are to security risks. Implementing new technologies, mobilizing the workforce, falling victim to advanced threats — all of these things can expose gaps in an organization’s security strategy that often lead to unauthorized access or a data breach. You need to understand your current level of security so you can effectively safeguard your systems and data and properly plan for tomorrow.

IBM’s security assessment can help. Our security experts perform assessments that not only identify risk but also offer recommendations to improve security and boost compliance.
