Dear Reader,

Security risks are continuously increasing ranging from hacking, phishing to identity fraud. Cyber crime stats are rising, for example according to recent survey by KPMG the total number of incidences has increased by 45%! On top of that the cost of security breaches is increasing too. *In the BERR 2008 Information Security Breaches Report the average cost of a security breach for a large organization is £130,000. This number increases with the size of the organization so for big corporate’s the average cost of a security breach is £1,500,000+! These are real figures and you cannot afford to ignore them. It can permanently damage your organization and your business prospects too.

Safeguarding your organization, department or application is a major challenge today. Do you know what the biggest mistake managers and staff make regards to information security? They think it is the exclusive responsibility of IT staff and Security Officer. Having worked with many global organizations internationally, IT Staff are just custodians at best of the data. It is the business users and department managers who are owners and responsible for safeguarding their data! This includes files, records, and related systems. So relying on IT alone is like sticking your head in the sand! You are responsible for your information and the information of your customers.

Saying that all too often the theory does not match the practice. The security responsibility is relegated to IT and Security Professionals! To make matters worse IT & Security professionals have so many others tasks competing for their daily attention at work. In your job you are rewarded on meeting your targets and on producing results. With time being so scarce and precious you need a quick and simple way to ascertain your risk exposure.

With so many threats out there spanning people, process & technology where do you begin?

What do you benchmark your information security against? How do you obtain a “bird’s eye view” of your security level? Many of you are put off by the task because you feel overwhelmed. You feel you don’t know enough about information security or can’t keep up with all the new threats. You don’t have the time to develop a repeatable assessment methodology. So you hope there are no breaches. But colleagues let me tell you hope is not a strategy! The statistics are against you. The problem is not going to disappear by itself.

May be you have deployed anti virus software, firewalls and have a security policy. But when asked if it is enough can you truly answer positively with confidence? Do all your current security products protect you adequately? Ignorance is not bliss in this matter. What are your security weaknesses? Where are your strengths? What should you spend your limited security budget on to give you the maximum protection?

You need to take action now before you lose control and are compromised. The fact that you are reading this proves that you are on the right track. My mission is to help you to resolve this challenge. To help you protect your information security assets in a practical way. You don’t need to be a security guru, hire expensive consultants and spend months developing an effective methodology and tool. Let us show you a more cost and time effective solution.


It has taken over 10 years experience and qualification like CISSP, CISA & MCSE to come up with this solution…

It has taken over a decade of consulting with international and local organizations to develop this solution at Fortrust. On top of that our Consultants studying and sitting a whole load of information security qualifications like CISSP, CISA, and Diploma in Risk Management. Then the experience and technology based qualifications from Microsoft, Symantec, Cisco and IBM-ISS. Reading 100’s of articles, books and attending security conferences internationally.

It has taken all of this plus countless hours working with individuals like you to realize that something was wrong. Yes there are tools and companies helping organizations secure themselves. But an end user tool that is easy for non technical product vendor experts to use in order obtain an overview of their security level was the missing link!

We were working with an international Airline. They had asked us to help them measure the information security level of their various business units.

We spent days discussing how we should go about doing this. It is at this stage we realized that even with their huge information security budget and team they were in the dark! It reminded us of the many other clients we had worked for who had been in a similar situation. They were not unique. This was a repeatable pattern worldwide!

The security professionals and business users where so busy and usually overwhelmed with projects and tasks. They did not have the time to research and develop a methodology and process themselves. Yet they were worried being ignorant of their security level and risk!

What we had started to do for our clients was to create a customizable methodology based on international security standards which they could adapt for their organizations. It worked so well that we decided it was time we developed a tool which individuals could use themselves.

The tool had to be easy to use with minimal training. A tool that business and security professionals could use themselves to carry out fast and reliable security assessments.

This security assessment tool made our life so easy and relieved the frustration of developing new methodologies and processes for our clients. We have shared the tool with industry experts and they told us that it provided serious value. It was easy to use and helped them discover their security level and risk.

We started receiving positive feedback from business users like:

"I’m not a security professional but it is so easy to use. I’ve completed a security assessment for my department in a day."

"Does the tool provide value? Yes, for sure. Straight up, its value is centered on giving someone a repeatable method, based on a recognized security standard. To quantify compliance, provide a means to score it - the tool excels at this."

This is when it hit me!

Once we realized how much value our security tool was providing, we had to make it available to the public at large. Not only did it have to be easy to use but also easy to obtain. It had to be available to download for professional users. So that they could start using it straight away.

There was no need for IT and Security professionals to take unnecessary security risks any longer.
