Ely, England, 3 April 2012 – IT Governance, the single source provider of cybersecurity management solutions, is advising senior managers that it pays to be cybersecure. Organisations that can prove that their information security management systems (ISMS) are compliant with the internationally recognised cybersecurity standard ISO27001, can gain contracts quickly, save costs and improve ROI. With the FastTrack™ ISO27001 Consultancy from IT Governance smaller companies can now achieve compliance within just three months.
According to a recent report from Symantec/Ponemon, UK Cost of a Data Breach, the average cost per capita of a data breach rose to £79 per record, up from £71 in 2010, and 68 percent higher than £47 in 2007. Data breaches cost companies an average of £79 per compromised record – of which £37 pertains to indirect costs such as lost business, reputational damage or churn of existing customers.
While larger companies with stronger brands manage to survive, despite a damaged reputation as a result of a data breach, it is questionable, if smaller companies would be in business for long if they become a victim. Small companies can also face difficulty in getting insurance providers to cover expenses arising from cybersecurity incidents.
ISO27001 is the cybersecurity standard which helps organisations identify what needs to be done to plug their security gaps and, provides a powerful framework for sharing best practice and guidance on protection form cybercrime.
The FastTrack™ ISO27001 Consultancy service is specifically designed to prepare a small organisation, with up to 19 employees and a single office location, for UKAS-accredited certification to ISO27001:2005 in just three months. There is a one-off, fixed-price consultancy fee of £5,000 which covers everything except travel and third-party certification fees. This service will save companies time and overhead costs, whilst also reducing future security expenditure and delivering 100% ROI.
