This is because as technologyadvances, cyber crime becomes increasingly sophisticated and pervasive. As more and more information isstored, processed, and transmitted electronically, the risks of unauthorized access both from internal andexternal sources increase. Since cyber criminals stop at nothing to put their devious plans into action, it isupon the enterprises to protect sensitive information from falling into wrong hands. Therefore, it is highlyessential that all companies irrespective of whether they are big or small to implement effective securitymeasures to protect information and information systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure,disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording, or destruction. Information security is theindispensable part of any business operation and hence enterprises must regularly carry out training,assessment, protection, monitoring & detection, incident response & repair, documentation, and review tokeep the cyber criminals at bay.Moreover, ensuring information security is very much essential if enterprises want to comply with thedifferent regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (GLBA), the Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), the Payment Card Industry DataSecurity Standard (PCI DSS), the Personal Information Protection and Electronics Document Act (PIPEDA) andso on. Otherwise, it can lead to huge financial penalties, expensive lawsuits, loss of reputation and business.Enterprises must be careful when looking out for service providers and must choose only those with end-to-end capability. They must help enterprises in not only building up business aligned information securityframework but also improving the Return on Security Investment (ROSI). They must be adept at providing awide spectrum of services such as Information Security consulting, Identity and Access Management services,Transformation & System Integration services, Managed Security Services and so on.
