San Antonio, TX – August 24, 2011 – Digital Defense, Inc. (DDI), a leading provider of Information Security governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the release of Insight 2011 (Insight), a confidential analysis report, which provides key information on Information Security (IS) programs and practices. Insight allows organizations to understand quickly and effectively how their IS programs compare with peer organizations.
Many recent headlines underscore the high cost of security breaches. Insight addresses questions that companies are asking regarding their IS programs, such as:
- Is my organization in step with what my peers and others are doing with respect to the use of technology and services to thwart various information security threats?
- Am I spending enough, or not enough, to promote security awareness within my organization?
81% of Insight participants utilize Penetration Testing to determine the risk of exploitation based on their organization’s IT network vulnerability.
“Westamerica welcomed the opportunity to participate in Insight. The report offered valuable perspective to assess our Information Security stance,” commented Mark Jackson, Information Security Officer at Westamerica Bancorporation. “To be able to compare and contrast our IS programs with similar organizations in the industry is advantageous. Our customers know they can depend on us to provide the highest level of protection of their confidential information. DDI is a trusted partner in ensuring this security.”
“Our goal for Insight is to provide actionable intelligence that most organizations find difficult to obtain,” stated Larry R. Hurtado, president and CEO at Digital Defense. “Insight offers a landscape from which organizations can make better, more informed business and security intelligence decisions that serve to improve their overall corporate security posture.”
Insight contains information from participants all over the United States, and from a wide range of organizational sizes. Participants shared information regarding their information security practices, as well as the types of vulnerabilities they deal with on a daily basis. DDI offers a customized Insight report to all participating clients, an added benefit to these organizations when evaluating their current and future IS investments.
