IT security and Risk Management

To be successful organisations must balance shareholder values, customer needs, profitability, and compliance with regulatory requirements. To maintain the delicate equilibrium a comprehensive IT security and risk management strategy is required.

In order to protect intellectual property, sensitive customer data, and other critical business data, organisations need to invest in a holistic security strategy to ensure protection, and to meet business objectives. Oyster Technologies can help you achieve this in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

IT Governance

Data is an organization’s greatest asset, which increases both the need for risk management and pressures on your organization to match compliance. Use of the cloud and other file-sharing or social media sites increase the complications that businesses face. The balance between exceptional IT performance and data protection is difficult, and there is an extraordinary dependence on technology and monumental consequences when it fails.

IT governance is required to address the challenges faced. Strategic and business objectives can only be achieved if the performance of those responsible for key IT decisions are monitored. IT governance identifies what is required to manage the risks an organisation faces within IT.

IT Planning, Strategy and Architecture

IT Asset and Portfolio management

IT assets can be expensive to acquire, maintain, and store. Therefore, asset management is key in helping IT teams efficiently use their companies’ resources in supporting the needs of users, clients, and business functions

IT asset management is using the assets and data to make important decisions. Asset-based decisions are about using the informational value of assets and data to propel the business forward, rather than looking at raw data quantities and accuracy.

Here are some of the key goals of asset management in IT

  • Enforce compliance with corporate security policies and regulatory requirements
  • Improve productivity by deploying the technology to support user and business needs
  • Reduce licensing and support costs by eliminating or reallocating underutilized resources and licenses
  • Limit overhead costs of managing the IT environment
