IT Governance to give advice on pen tests and cookie audits at Infosecurity 2012


Ely, England, 23 April 2012 – IT Governance, the single source provider for cyber security management solutions, has announced that it will extend its offer of free consultancy sessions at Infosecurity Europe 2012 (24th – 26th April, Earl’s Court, London) to include advice on cyber security vulnerabilities, penetration testing (to evaluate the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack from malicious outsiders), and their Cookies Audit Service designed to help companies comply with the EU's cookie law that comes into force on 26 May.

Consultancy slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Interested visitors can request a free session to talk about their implementation or compliance project by registering at:

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “There is a lot happening, right now, in the world of cyber security. Rapid advances in cybercrime technology and techniques have resulted in an unprecedented rise in data breaches over the last year. On the other side, the European Commission has proposed a major reform of the EU legal framework on the protection of personal data. And not to forget, governments and large companies are insisting that their suppliers have accredited ISO27001 – the cyber security standard.”

“These are issues that are increasingly worrying senior management. We are using the platform of Infosecurity Europe 2012, where we are exhibiting for a fifth year, to encourage visitors to talk to us about their concerns and get straight answers.” adds Calder.

The ‘compliance surgeries’ as IT Governance is calling the sessions, offer visitors at stand D92 the unique opportunity to receive free, impartial and vendor neutral advice from one of the company’s qualified and experienced consultants on:
