Team Security Service

Enterprise-Wide Security Management Process

Here's the business process for managing security in any enterprise -- large or small. This is the single most important thing you can do to protect your IT related business assets!

Integrated Enterprise-Wide Security Management Process

As part of our TeamSecurity offering, we'll help your senior management team understand and execute this process. But that's not all, we'll also help your technical team determine the most technically effective and cost efficient way for your organization to enforce the abstract behaviors identified in the first steps of the security management process.

This prevents the most common pitfall in managing security:
Technical people making purely technical decisions about purely business issues, for purely technical reasons.

And we'll act as an extension to your team, over time, helping management execute the process, and helping the technical team make valid technical and business decisions. Our TeamSecurity offering includes on-site presence, if desired, during or after a 3rd party audits to help you manage and respond to your auditors.
