The Gartner benchmark validated that we were receiving competitive pricing for the service levels we expected. The benchmark was useful in paving the way for our contract extension.

IT Risk Management is an ongoing effort to keep pace with threats.

IT Risk Management

IT risk management does not work "out of the box." It is not a product to purchase or a policy to put in place. Instead, it is a process of business risk management that must be performed on an ongoing basis. It is critical for an organization to continuously examine the risks and security objectives within its business environment, and systematically bake protection into the way it operates.

Gartner's systematic, comprehensive approach to IT security and risk management is an overall model for business risk management that identifies security-related business processes that must be baked in, and provides guidance on security objectives, security posture, and security architecture alternatives.


We understand the key issues you are facing.
  • Our IT Security Assessments gauge the "health" of our clients' IT security environments to determine if they are "doing the right things" with their security programs.
