Comprehensive Vulnerability Management and Risk Assessment Service

Guidance Consulting : 26 March, 2010  (New Product)
Guidance Consulting has added risk assessment and vulnerability management to its offering of capacity planning and disaster recovery planning services
Guidance Consulting, a Georgia-based IT consulting firm, has expanded its Risk Assessment program to include more comprehensive evaluations and vulnerability management. The new program is expected to create a higher standard in information technology systems assessments, offering companies a more cost-effective way to secure their information.

Guidance Consulting has always offered capacity planning and disaster recovery planning as part of their services, with vulnerability management features playing a large role in information security. Additional features will now allow companies to move through the entire risk spectrum, including:

* Vulnerability assessments to identify potential threats
* Vulnerability metrics to determine the likelihood of said threats actually occurring
* Identification and evaluation of existing and potential vulnerabilities
* Determination of loss impact if vulnerabilities are exploited
* Identification of controls for reducing and eliminating risks
* Follow-through with vulnerability program maintenance

By addressing each of these steps individually and as part of a complete, comprehensive package, Guidance Consulting expects to incorporate company-wide changes that affect every aspect of information security.

"Despite this exciting new program, it's important to note that we're not talking about going in and changing a company's entire infrastructure," says Guidance Consulting senior consultant Daniel Gottilla. "By conducting risk assessments from every possible angle, we're simply able to present business leaders with a comprehensive summary of our findings. This allows them to make smart decisions that align with their goals and with their budget."

What's different about this new Risk Assessment program is that it comes with a wide range of additional options provided through Guidance Consulting. Policy management, audit management, and vulnerability tracking all offer opportunities for companies to be even more proactive in securing their information. Or, if desired, to be less proactive, since Guidance Consulting offers features for off-site IT surveillance and management.

"In our opinion, the next big step in information technology and security isn't a new type of software or a new way to catch vulnerabilities," says Gottilla. "It's really all about designing an approach that is as flexible and unique as the businesses we help. That's what our new Risk Assessment program is really all about."
