IT World Canada: RSA debuts GRC Consultancy program

(2-March-2012) SAN FRANCISCO -- RSA has launched a new Governance, Risk and Compliance Advisory Service to help businesses of any size in figure out where they need to beef up security or address compliance issues.

Mat Allen, senior director of the security and risk management consulting practice at RSA's parent EMC Corp. [NYSE: EMC], called the endeavour not a completely unique or new service, but one that consolidates and adds on to existing ones. “Basically we’ve defined a series of services that’ll hang off of a broader framework called GRC – or governance risks and compliance – and under that are some tactical offers as well as a broader strategy,” he said. 

Allen thinks the security industry as a whole has been in flux and there’s greater need for each every business type to know its security needs better. “We’ve seen a wholesale shift in a customer and marketplace need around the broader concept of security and that’s largely driven by compliance on one hand ... and how confusing that’s been,” he said. “Think about the implications for them to understand it and, if you’re a smaller company, that’s an encumbrance you just can’t afford.”
