IBM is to introduce a monthly security bulletin to inform users and service providers about attacks on the critical infrastructure of the internet.
The IBM Global Business Security Index will assess, measure and analyse global network security and business threats and attack trends, IBM said. Based on reports from 2,700 information security staff at IBM and 500,000 monitored devices, IBM said its alert service would provide businesses with a threat landscape.
The report, which IBM said could be customised by industry, tracks real and potential IT threats to a business. It will cover threats to IT network and infrastructure, including potential and real threats that could damage a user’s business.
The IBM Global Business Security Index will also cover business continuity trends, statistics and recommendations for keeping employees, customers, suppliers and partners connected with critical business information during natural disasters and power failures.
