N'compass Launches Information Security and Risk Solutions Practice
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Solutions, Inc., a leading business IT strategy firm based in
Minneapolis, has launched a new Information Security and Risk Solutions
practice dedicated to the needs of data-intense corporations,
non-profits, school systems and government agencies. The new practice
team will focus exclusively on data security compliance, strategy, and
N'compass is forming the new practice to help organizations secure their
data environments with the intent of reducing risks and increasing their
competitive advantage. Believing that U.S. companies and organizations
will see more data breaches in the years to come, the IT strategy firm
has developed a new, holistic approach to information security practices
that can help more organizations both prevent and, in the event of
breach, contain damage.
"In some industries, being able to promote an organization's financial
and operational stability represents a key selling point to obtaining a
customer's business," said Chris Flaherty, CEO of N'compass. "We believe
the new point of differentiation will be data security stability. In
other words, can your organization prevent, and in the event of an
attack, bounce back swiftly? Customers want to know that they're not at
risk because the organization hasn't carefully developed and implemented
a data security strategy. That's why we're forming this new practice -
to cntinue to give our clients the competitive edge they need."
With the growing amount of media coverage and focus on corporate data
breaches, N'compass believes it's critical for organizations to focus on
the whole strategy, not just prevention. The way an organization handles
a data breach is an important part of any strategy - and ultimately,
building and maintaining trusted relationships with key stakeholder
groups, such as customers, investors, suppliers and employees.
With that focus, N'compass' Information Security and Risk Solutions will
offer three areas of expertise:
Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)
Security Infrastructure Development
Leading N'compass' new Information Security and Risk Solutions is Mike
Hrubes, who joined N'compass from financial services provider Moneygram,
where he served as manager of information security systems. Hrubes has
18 years experience in information technology and data security.
"There is a definite a gap in the industry around security practices,"
said Mike Hrubes, Director of N'compass' Information Security and Risk
Solutions. "Most consulting companies focus on assessing current
vulnerabilities against industry standards and then alert their clients
about potential gaps. We don't believe that many of these assessments
address the big picture, and therefore, leave many organizations
vulnerable. Organizations need a complete security program that
considers prevention, detection, incident response, compliance, and
corporate communications. The bottom line: It's not necessarily about
fixing the gap of the day - it's about getting ahead of the fixes with a
To help organizations better understand why a holistic approach is
critical to data security, N'compass is launching a five-part webinar
series. The series, dubbed "Don't Get Breach-Slapped," will focus on
suggestions for building a successful security program, as well as more
detailed advice on web attacks, mobility and end-user security. The
first webinar in the series is scheduled to occur on February 11, 2014.
