The latest procurement market intelligence study by SpendEdge on information systems helps companies to identify the procurement best practices and understand the overall supply-demand scenario.
Constant cyber threats mandates information and data security
Insider threats, cyber-attacks, and an increase in the number of hackers is boosting the requirement for information and data security in the market. The recent WannaCry Ransomware attack paralyzed information systems (IS) across several industries. Thus, implementing an information security program will help to protect the company’s assets, framing information security guidelines, managing risks, information classification, and security training. The rapidly changing types of security threats are encouraging companies to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data to design and build updated security structures. SpendEdge offers procurement market intelligence study that provides information on sourcing practices, market dynamics, and pricing. The study on IS security industry analyzes data for supplier identification and capability assessment of the major suppliers in the IS security industry.
Many organizations in the market are implementing patch management strategies to monitor and update the IS security regularly. Patchworking is a regular maintenance practice, which ensures that all security related issues are fixed at a minuscule level and reduce chances of critical damage from unwarranted cyber-attack. Additionally, patch management will allow the organizations to stay in control of the IS infrastructure and deploy security measures quicker on the advent of unauthorized access or virus attack.
Adopting wireless networks
Wireless networks are helping companies save the cost of building an information system framework and helps increase connectivity in the workforce. By using strong encryption codes and regular monitoring of systems, organizations are protecting this network from cyber-attacks and security threats. Wireless networking allows remote monitoring and diagnostics of IS infrastructure, enabling flexibility of network management. Additionally, wireless network systems promote easy access and efficient management of information systems.
Audit trails and log management
With the implementation of security information and event management (SIEM) tools, log management and reviewing audit trails are becoming easier. Audit trails record all information on the management, changes, integrity, and users accessing the information. System administrators use audit trails to review the workflow and identify security problems regularly. Log management is essential for monitoring and for alerting anomalies in the systems.
