IT Governance, the leading supplier of cybersecurity and data protection expertise, is delighted to announce the opening of a new office in New York, United States.
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “We are delighted to be opening a new office in New York and to expand our team in the States at such a crucial time in most organizations’ cybersecurity journeys. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver a broad range of integrated, high-quality solutions globally, and hope that our presence in New York will allow us to help US-based organizations plan and implement resilient data protection strategies.”
US-based organizations are dealing with an increasing demand for data protection expertise and cybersecurity solutions. The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) Cybersecurity Requirements, which came into effect on March 1, 2018, have raised the standards of protection against cyber attacks, requiring security measures such as appointing a chief information security officer, and conducting regular penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.
Moreover, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on May 25, 2018, requires all organizations based outside the EU but which are providing services into the EU to fully comply with its requirements. Non-compliant organizations are exposed to significant fines as well as reputational damage and business continuity issues.
IT Governance’s compliance services include security testing, documentation tools, staff awareness implementation programs, consultancy, and training to aid certification to ISO 27001, the international best-practice standard for an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001 certification proves that an organization takes information security seriously, and can help achieve and demonstrate compliance with leading data security legislation, including the NYDFS and the GDPR.
IT Governance’s popular ISO 27001 Foundation and Lead Implementer Combination Course
provides a complete introduction to the requirements of ISO 27001, and covers all the activities required to plan, implement, and maintain an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS. The four-day course will run in New York on 20–23 March, 14–17 August, and 9–12 October 2018.
