Reduce Risk and Resistance for InfoSec Projects

Concern about user push-back is the #1 customer objection to end user InfoSec products according to numerous senior sales and support people.

That concern is justified because of the approach used in most InfoSec projects.  Our track record and project studies show that a more wholistic strategy does get different results.

What’s the gap?

Most InfoSec initiatives aim to fill a need with a new technology. When technology is given center stage, often no one pays attention to the fact that it’s forcing the business to change.  That’s what drives the end user push-back.

Ignoring or downplaying business change and user response significantly increases numerous project risks especially to ROI factors such as rate of adoption, ultimate utilization and proficiency in a new behavior. Conversely, studies1,2 show a high correlation between business transformation and project success measures such as being on-time, on-budget, and getting high stakeholder satisfaction.

SecuriThink evolved specifically to reduce risk and increase success for InfoSec projects. We leverage what’s already going well in your organization while shifting to higher potential. We engage and manage factors too often thought to be outside the authority of a project because too often a project is planned for a result level which is lower than that really needed by the business.

Our methodology describes 5 different levels of results. In many cases, technology deployments focus on level 1 (Design) and 2 (Execute). Business stakeholders are looking for results at level 3 or above such as passing audits, protecting proprietary digital assets, preventing accidental data disclosure, active or even pro-active data governance, etc.
