Managing security

ComGuard sees security as a management concern

The practice of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is no longer a luxury but a necessity for businesses, and should be addressed at a senior management level rather than by a junior team, according to computer security specialist ComGuard.ERM strategy is designed to minimise risk through the process of planning, managing, leading and controlling the IT activities of an organization.Daniel Nufer, sales and marketing director for ComGuard said, “Companies are investing increasing amounts of revenue in protecting business critical data, realising that ERM is essential to ensuring business continuity, while protecting business assets, and minimising lost profit during downtime.“Success depends on striking a balance between enhancing profits and managing risk. Put simply: IT security ensures business continuity and sustained profitability.”ComGuard estimate that as much as 40% more revenue can be garnered through the efficient deployment of enterprise-wide IT security systems.
