Technology has changed the way organizations collaborate, communicate and share information and
data. Internet, web applications, and networking have created innovative new ways of working. Cyber
communications is constantly advancing and affordability of these through computers, networking and
hand-held devices coupled with level of information dependency have brought out issues of security and
privacy of data.

However, the expansive use of technologies also exposes organization and businesses to security risks
such as security breaches, data leaks and cyber attacks. Information security regulations and standards
such as FISMA, HIPPA, GLBA etc and IT compliance solutions provide organizations with a security
baseline and tools to strengthen its security posture. However, to achieve compliance, organizations must
implement perimeter defenses, system certifications, auditing, as well as user involvement. Non-
compliance to the security regulations will lead to penalties, which would usurp the security issues.

access management tools are the most threat prone zones. Research shows that since most
organizations do not monitor security cyber attacks they loose large amounts on a global basis in
intellectual property due to cyber crime, theft of data and trade secrets. Hence business houses deploy
firewalls and information security systems as threat management measures. Leading IT security service
