A year after being acquired by global business standards company BSI, Info-Assure is changing its name to “BSI” and will adopt the well-recognized BSI visual brand.
Info-Assure, a leading provider of cybersecurity and information assurance to clients in the government, defence, policing, banking, retail and energy sectors, will be merged into the recently created business stream “Cybersecurity and Information Resilience”. This centre of excellence provides a range of solutions to help clients protect and secure infrastructure, meet regulatory and compliance obligations, keep people safe as well as maintain reputation and trust.
Martin Walsham, Cybersecurity and Information Resilience Director at BSI said: “Embracing digital technologies is a matter of survival for organizations in today's hyper-connected age. However, this has created a tension between addressing the increasingly complex security issues and sustaining functionality. Our Cybersecurity and Information Resilience division provides expertise in areas such as data protection, compliance, cybersecurity and risk mitigation. This helps organizations maintain productivity whilst ensuring information and supporting systems are protected and secure, regulatory and compliance obligations are met, people are safe and reputation and trust is maintained.”
Mark Basham, EMEA Managing Director, BSI said: “No organization can afford to be complacent about information resilience. Recent attacks upon commercial and government organizations shows that information resilience is a crucial ingredient in the overall success and reputational management of an organization. By creating a Cybersecurity and Information Resilience centre of excellence it further enhances our information management and security capability. Ultimately helping our clients keep their information an organizational asset rather than a toxic liability.”
