Civica has launched an information security service for housing associations and public sector organisations. The service, which includes BS7799 risk management, security auditing and process consulting, and information security software, is claimed to help organisations to build and operate more effective security policies.
Delivered through Civica Services, the group’s infrastructure division, the portfolio comprises solutions for e-security profiling, remote access management, end-point and perimeter protection, and business continuity, together with consultancy and training. The new service is provided either as a stand-alone service or integrated with Civica’s storage, infrastructure and software asset management capabilities.
Steve Reynolds, managing director, Civica Services, said, “After recent incidents and the ever-increasing availability of government services as electronic transactions, public sector organisations are coming under greater pressure to review and improve information security. This applies as much to security procedures and staff privacy assessments as it does to selecting the right tools for managing complex IT infrastructures and software applications.”
