ComGuard believes that the Middle East’s executives are becoming increasingly concerned about IT security and the threat it poses to their organisation’s ability to continue operating. Furthermore, the regional IT security consultancy says a growing number of business in the region have finally realised that poor IT security can actually affect their firm’s long-term profitability.

“Most executives agree that risk management is more about a company’s business strategy than a low level IT concern, and should be addressed at a senior management level rather than by IT administrators,” says Daniel Nufer, sales and marketing director for ComGuard, a regional IT security consultancy.

Unsurprisingly, ComGuard believes that it has the solution set to address this need and continues to talk up its enterprise risk management (ERM) offering, which is designed to protect vulnerable companies from a whole host of things, including financial fraud, data corruption, theft and malicious code.

“Progressive organisations in the region will deploy an enterprise risk management (ERM) solution that minimises the effects of risk on both capital and earnings, through the process of planning, managing, leading, and controlling the IT activities of an organisation,” says Nufer.
