Information Security

It is often said that Information is Power. As the name suggests, Information Security (Infosec) seeks to helps organizations maintain appropriate controls over information – possibly one of the most strategic assets for any organization. The ability for the right person to access the right information at the right time can helps organizations save millions of dollars – conversely, the unavailability or loss of information can lead to huge fines, penalties and long term damage to the organization.

Our Information Security Practice seeks to ensure the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of our client’s information (CIA). In order to increase our geographical presence, we partner with some of the leading consultants for ISO 27001 certification organizations in the region, many of which are themselves certified to the ISO27001 Standard, and are in an excellent position to ‘walk-the-talk’. Collectively, we believe that we would have worked successfully with over 80 certified clients. With our combined resources and expertise, we believe that our Information Security Practice is in a position to provide high quality Consulting, Assessment, Training and Certification Services to our Infosec customers.

Green IT

Green IT is the study and practice of using computing resources efficiently. The goal of Green IT is to do more with less, with minimum utilization of resources. It is said that “Green” usage of IT itself can help reduce up to 15% carbon emissions by 2020 (globally). Automatically, since implementation of Green IT helps save resources that cost money, it helps save money too.

The larger the size of the organization, the larger the potential savings through implementation of Green IT.

Green IT can be split into four categories:

  • Responsible manufacturing
  • Power management
  • Consumables
  • Recycling and disposal

It is our opinion that within the next 5 years, any organization that is unable to demonstrate a commitment towards protecting the environment will lose credibility and will soon get overtaken by its peers. The BCS Foundation certificate in Green IT and also the ISO14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) provide some effective frameworks for demonstrating commitment to Green.
