Digital technology has become essential to modern businesses, underpinning key functions such as digital workflow, processing, supply chain, marketing and customer interaction. While modern digital technology offers greatly improved business efficiency and enhanced customer service, the flip side of the coin is risk to your business if sufficient security measures are not put in place.
NineDot’s security practice offers advice that will help you to understand the state of your security measures, the level of security-related risk that exists, whether there is need to address security shortfalls or gaps, and how to go about it.
We offer practical, pragmatic security advice to keep your business and customers safe, based on the accumulated experience of accomplished security professionals who have held Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), IT Security manager (ITSM) and other senior advisory roles and associated responsibilities across a wide range of businesses and been directly in the line of fire for enterprise security.
