Burlington, MA (September 21st, 2006) - DAMICON, an information technology services company, wants to change corporate thinking about security. Too often, security gets in the way making it more difficult for people to do their jobs. This prompts them to seek out ways to circumvent or bypass security controls leading to systems that are more vulnerable than ever.
Vin D'Amico, President of DAMICON, offers this summary. "Security needs to focus on people, policy and process. People need to be educated. Policy needs to be reasonable. And, process needs to be simple."
The idea of locking down vulnerable areas to make it almost impossible for criminals to enter often has the effect of making it difficult for employees to get their jobs done. This leads to reduced productivity and increased expense. Vin asks, "Is the cure worse than the disease?".
DAMICON offers an agile "Network Security Program" that starts with a quick review of the people, policies and processes to be secured. This review establishes the framework around which an agile and effective security process can be implemented. There are numerous ways to enforce security restrictions. It is important to align business needs with security goals.
Vin adds, "Security is getting tighter with each new threat. While we have to live with new restrictions, we also have to maintain productivity levels and job satisfaction."
