Dimension Data has announced a new assessment offering which helps organisations assess the maturity of their security architecture.
Also assessing the underlying security safeguards which protect human assets from cyber attacks and their processes and technologies, the architecture will determine the ability to determine capability and maturity of key architecture controls around people, processes and technology using industry standard metrics, and determine the ability to manage security to industry standards.
Matthew Gyde, Dimension Data’s group executive – security, said: “Even employees are not safe from variety of threats including drive-by and watering hole attacks which often occur over a weekend. In addition, we’re seeing a low level of maturity in some large enterprises – many of which have spent millions of dollars on security technology.
“When assessing the robustness of an organisation’s security, we cannot leave out the employee. In fact, it’s essential that employees understand their role as both an asset and a potential security liability in an organisation.”
