Value added reseller, ISC, has launched what it cliams is the first all-in-one programme to enable small to medium-sized businesses to introduce information and network security best practice.

In the ISC Security Partner Programme, a team of independently certified consultants help businesses identify their security needs and implement a management process to achieve best practice in protecting their data. The programme is based on the UK government approved BS7799/ISO17799 standard.

By first identifying the business critical processes, the greatest and most likely threats and the potential for loss, the Security Partner Programme ensures that investments in security deliver value.

The Security Partner Programme is the only one to package all the BS7799/ISO17799 deliverables in a single programme; spanning the PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT stages; provide ongoing support, even when ISC is no longer at the customer’s site; build in skills transfer as ISC provides the knowledge, skills and experience the customer does not have but also provides training throughout the Programme so the customer can take on all duties in future, said ISC.

“Introducing best practice provides assurance to external organisations that you are adopting a strategy for managing your operational risk surrounding data and for mitigating any potential financial impact," said Bruce Hallas, Information & Network Security Business Manager at ISC.

"Small to medium-sized businesses want to address their responsibility for data confidentiality, integrity and availability, but the current options are expensive and arguably poor value,” he said.
