San Antonio, TX – July 28, 2010 – Digital Defense, Inc., a leading provider of information security governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the release of its second annual benchmark report known as DDI Insight. The DDI Insight confidential analysis report provides key information that allows organizations to understand quickly and effectively if the budgeting, planning, and execution of their information security program is in line with that of peer organizations. Among other items, the report focuses on an organization’s current security services usage as well as future intentions to add additional services. Also compared are an organization’s security “readiness” against similar sized organizations using DDI’s Security GPA® criterion.
“We have found the DDI Insight report extremely valuable,” said Matt Roedell, Vice President of Infrastructure and Information Security at TruMark Financial® Credit Union. “We place a high priority on information security and the report validates our efforts in relation to financial institutions across the country. We can compare and contrast based on size or location of other organizations. It is gratifying not only to learn about future security issues we can consider, but also to share what we have learned on an anonymous basis through this medium. DDI’s security solutions, especially as accessed through the intuitive Frontline Client Portal, have consistently helped us achieve our information security program goals and objectives over the years.”
“Organizations are under increasing pressure to ensure their systems and networks are secure. The topic of information security is a high priority for Boards, Audit Committees, and executive management teams,” explained Tom DeSot, EVP and Chief Information Officer of Digital Defense, Inc. “No organization wants to be the one featured in such a news story or Internet blog where reporters and readers scrutinize the organization’s security practices and what they should or should not have done to prevent the breach. While these organizations have historically been able to look at their financial ratings and determine how they compare to their peers with respect to financial standing and management effectiveness, there has not been similar information outlining how they compare with respect to their information security practices until now.”
Insight report contains information from participants all over the United States, and from a wide range of organizational sizes. Each of the participating organizations shared information regarding their information security practices as well as the types of vulnerabilities they deal with on a daily basis. DDI makes the Insight report available to all participating clients on an annual basis.
