How IT Governance Services Enhance Your Approach to IT and Information Security
In today’s competitive market, it’s often difficult to attract and retain staff with information security leadership and governance experience. Further, the constantly increasing regulatory expectations and growing complexities of the cybersecurity landscape make it more difficult for in-house staff to manage audits and exams, perform risk assessments, implement proper controls and keep up with the latest industry trends.
