Technology performs many mission critical roles within ASCO, cyber security
is therefore a top priority for them.
Jim Titmuss, Group IT&S Director explained that when he joined ASCO Group there were a number of high priority areas that needed to be addressed, and IT security appeared fairly high up that list. Therefore, ASCO Group needed to get a health check on the general IT security landscape from a partner that had a proven track record in this area.
Following a competitive process, Commissum was selected as ASCO’s security partner to assist with an initial project to help ASCO better understand their global information security risks and threats.
ASCO needed to understand their baseline so that they knew exactly which areas they needed to target security resource to realise the greatest return on investment.
ASCO needed to do the work within a challenging timeframe and had to ensure they selected a trusted expert to partner with due to the critical nature of the subject.
