Strategic Consulting

Trusted security advice from the experts at Foundstone

Effective information security management is more than just putting out fires. Organizations must identify how they use information to meet their strategic business goals and then determine the best ways to protect those assets throughout the information security lifecycle.

Many business leaders escalate information security from an IT responsibility to a business requirement. While the priority is higher, IT budgets haven’t grown proportionately. Meanwhile, the number of vulnerabilities increases, threats are more sophisticated, and greater regulatory oversight is a fact of life.

McAfee Foundstone is a trusted information security advisor to hundreds of organizations across a wide spectrum of industries. Tight budgets can force some organizations to implement a disjointed security strategy that doesn’t include all the criteria of an effective information security program. Foundstone’s strategic services help fill those gaps. Our Compliance services help enterprises meet increasingly complicated regulatory requirements. Comprehensive Foundstone Health Checks evaluate network security to assess current risks and vulnerabilities, so companies maintain strong, enforceable security policies. With our Incident Response and Forensics services, enterprises can secure immediate crisis response and proactively prepare for a security emergency, while our series of Program Development services strengthen the foundation of any information security program.
