Data and System Security

Cyber-security threats are everywhere. Do you know where your vulnerabilities are?


Data is the lifeblood of an organization. It is a competitive advantage. And it can cause damage if it lands in the wrong hands. Threats to this data come in many forms: cyber-criminals, competitors, even your own employees. Is your data secure?

Protecting the data that has been entrusted to your organization is crucial. The data that you have is a competitive advantage. Losing control of that data can put the entire company at risk. It can threaten customer relationships. It can also lead to compliance failures (hyperlink to Compliance). Both of these can lead to revenue loss and financial penalties.

Security is a culture

Data used to only be stored behind the corporate firewall and anti-malware appliances. Maintaining those devices was enough to keep most companies safe. However, cloud, mobility, andBYOD have changed that. Knowledge workers demand access to their data when they need it, no matter where they are.

Anytime, anywhere access to data has empowered employees to be more productive. However, it has presented many challenges to organizations. Opening these connections to your data could also expose that data to other outside security risks.

Security is a process

While keeping security appliances and software patches up-to-date is still vital, it is no longer enough. A security practice needs to be established to ensure that your organization can identify new vulnerabilities along with the tools to quickly remediate those vulnerabilities.

Like your organization, your infrastructure (hyperlink to Infrastructure) changes constantly. That is why QI has created tools and resources to take an IT Service Management (ITSM) approach to information security and compliance.

ITSM approach to security

Our approach incorporates tools such as Uzado for security and compliance. The process includes:

  • Assessing and scanning 100% of your IT infrastructure
  • Identifying risks and vulnerabilities, then prioritize them
  • Building a plan to remediate those risks
  • Verifying that vulnerabilities have been remediated

This process does not stop once the threats have been removed and secured. With your evolving environment, new vulnerabilities can open up without your team’s knowledge. This process needs to be repeated on a regular, scheduled basis.

We are here to help

QI was built on a security foundation. We understand how difficult ongoing and rigorous vulnerability testing and remediation can be. Our security and compliance experts are here to help you understand your current risks and build an internal practice to address them.
