As more companies move their data between corporate networks, mobile devices, and the Cloud, the task to remain cyber secure remains ever more challenging.
BOISE, IDAHO, USA, August 22, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cyber crime is growing exponentially and organizations throughout the US are under increasing pressure to protect their sensitive data. As more companies move their data between corporate networks, mobile devices, and the Cloud, the task to remain cyber secure remains ever more challenging.
IT Governance, the global leaders in information security, has released a new infographic as part of its campaign to encourage awareness of cyber crime against US organizations, and the solutions available to help mitigate the threat.
The infographic, which accompanies this announcement and may be published by the media, quantifies the reality of today’s cyber threat with hard-hitting statistics.
Just last year there were 1.5 million monitored cyber attacks in the United States, a 700% increase in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and an 87% increase in phishing attacks.
Even though the US Department of Homeland Security has recognized cyber crime as a serious threat to the country’s critical infrastructure and economy, 67% of US cybersecurity professionals said that their agency is ‘not ready to fend off hackers’.
IT Governance is urging US organizations to take action and implement a robust information security management system (ISMS). ISO27001 is the internationally recognised best-practice Standard that lays out the requirements of an ISMS and forms the backbone of every intelligent cybersecurity risk management strategy.
Alan Calder, Founder and Executive Chairman of IT Governance, commented: “If understood and implemented correctly, ISO27001 can help to rationalize security expenditure and reduce the impact of cyber crime, while giving a business a competitive edge.”
IT Governance, a specialist in the field of information security, has created ISO27001 packaged solutions to give US organizations online access to world-class expertise. Each fixed-priced solution is a combination of products and services that will enable organizations to implement ISO27001 at a speed and budget appropriate to a company’s needs.
