Injazat Data Systems advised enterprises to correctly position their Information Security Risk Management Framework (ISRM) in their business strategies and operations during the ‘Security Strategist 2012’ conference held today (Monday, April 16, 2012) at The Address Dubai Marina.
In a presentation titled ‘Information Security (IS) Management – When the Going Gets Tough,’ Injazat’s Head of Information Security, Kamran Ahsan, said that businesses should adopt context-based defenses that respond appropriately to dangers based on risk levels. He outlined Injazat’s ISRM Methodology which enforces a layered security approach that balances between Threat and Control and enables prudent application of Preventive and Detective Controls at the key architectural layers.
Injazat’s IS chief added that majority of successful intrusions can be avoided through prudent application of basic to intermediate level controls. He further emphasized on the urgency of re-thinking IS strategies especially in light of challenges associated with cloud computing, virtualization, mobility and critical infrastructure protection.
“Injazat’s ISRM approach enables organizations to manage their information security risks by keeping a fine balance between threats and security controls in a cost effective manner. This forum is a great platform for us to encourage this shift from traditional to risk-managed layered security” said Ibrahim Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.
