"Financial and security executives constantly grapple with how to cost-effectively deploy security measures within their organizations," said Warren Zafrin, managing director, Financial Services Information Security at BearingPoint. "A risk-based model lets them apply security strategically, striking the right balance between meeting information privacy, data integrity and business continuity requirements, while controlling overall security costs."

Risk-based Information Security is designed to efficiently and cost-effectively protect companies through strategic consulting, application services and technology solutions. While information is critical to an organization's survival, it must be protected against privacy breaches, theft and fraud -- all of which can wreak havoc with customers while costing millions of dollars and potentially irreparable damage to a company.

"We are pleased to be working closely with BearingPoint to help customers mitigate the risks to the business associated with data protection," said Sathvik Krishnamurthy, president and CEO of Voltage Security. "Information encryption picks up where other data protection solutions leave off, persistently and intelligently protecting information as it flows through email, files, databases and applications."

Mark Bower, director of Information Protection at Voltage Security, added, "Our collective goal is to lower the costs and complexities associated with securing information across the enterprise. With a smart, risk-based approach and the right technology and products in place, organizations can turn their focus back on the business."

Data breaches can cause significant financial harm, create liability, erode competitive strength and market share, and make it extremely difficult to attract and retain customers. To avoid that, take a step in the right direction by attending a seminar on Risk-based Information Security. Visit www.voltage.com/reducerisk for more information and to register.
