Cyber Security
Organizational efficiencies and innovations are today, enabled by technology. The digital era has impacted every business segment in every country across the globe. From the wealthiest economies to the poorest countries; technology is used a major differentiator between success and mediocrity. Medical doctors in the United States of America are performing virtual surgery via the web in remote areas of the Sudan. Software developers in India are working on projects that based in Europe. This international collaboration is great especially since in promotes public-private partnerships.

Nonetheless the high degree of collaboration comes at a price. Systems are now increasingly vulnerable to attacks by competitors, electronic fraud, data loss, sabotage, and intellectual property theft. As organizations become more virtual in nature, jurisdiction begins to play a more important role in data ownership.

The ability to secure organizational assets becomes a paramount task since IT is now closely tied to the organizations sustainability. Alterium provides a proven approach to secure IT infrastructure, the process being enabled, and the business intelligence intrinsic to stored data. We help our clients understand, predict and mitigate cyber risk.
