Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to protecting your business processes. After all, you can’t address what you can’t see. Hidden security gaps can leave your organization exposed to data breaches or regulatory noncompliance, which could hurt both your reputation and market share. The IBM Security Risk Assessment can help you obtain the knowledge you need to help reduce security risks at all levels of your business.
Our innovative approach—backed by proven methodologies and tools—is designed to identify your security strengths and weaknesses. We offer recommendations for mitigating risks and help you develop IT processes that support your business goals. With the IBM assessment in hand, you’ll be armed with the information you need to make a strong business case for tackling your organization’s security issues.
