‘There is a fast track risk assessment service built around the 7799Audit tool. A “Top and Tail” audit is offered to organisations whereby an initial meeting outlines the scope of the audit and a completion meeting to review the audit. Companies benefit from a significant cost saving as well as dramatically reducing consultancy bills'. Comments Paul Dwyer, managing director, TeamInfoSec. ‘The 7799Audit software tool uses IRA, Intelligent Risk Assessment patent pending technology based on intelligence from over 10,000 information security sources.' continues Dwyer.

So compliance, is it this seasons buzz word or a stark reality facing many organisations? Dwyer believes ‘The use of technology by Organisations is subject to a plethora of legislation emitting from the national governments of each jurisdiction along with legislation emitting from the EU. There are the Data Protection Act, the Freedom of Information act and many others to contend with. The challenge for organisations is managing the balance between their business objectives and the business risks inherent in using technology.' Dwyer continues saying ‘Your information is a business asset and as a result your IT resources must be adequately secured and efficiently managed and controlled. A breach of IT Security or non compliance can result in many negative effects including high costs to resolve, loss of reputation and litigation to name but a few. The ISO 17799 standard has recently been updated (June 2005) to reflect the current threats on vulnerabilities. 7799Audit is the only tool on the market place which is based on the updated standard.'

Fujitsu have now formed an alliance with TeamInfoSec and are pleased to announce the availability of the 7799Audit software tool and the risk assessment service.
