The security industry's most dynamic participants gathered yesterday at Café Opera in Stockholm for the award ceremony.
"It's fantastic to win this year's IT Security Solution award. The response to The Procurement Check has been 100% positive, and it has even attracted international interest. It's hugely exciting to be able to provide hundreds of people and organisations with the ability to end unsecure IT purchasing. This is a win for all of us," says Bengt Berg, Cybercom's Head of Compliance Management Services and creator of The Procurement Check.
The Procurement Check is free of charge and helps companies and public authorities to procure more secure IT and a more sustainable IT environment. It was launched a year ago, and has been downloaded over 1,000 times. It is more cost effective to invest in security in the procurement phase of IT.
"I am extremely proud of my colleagues and of this great recognition by the industry. This further consolidates Cybercom's strength in IT security and is confirmation that we are driving developments in the right direction. Cybercom is equipping its clients to be able to manage the security risks more cost effectively and in a sustainable way," says Niklas Flyborg, President and CEO, Cybercom.
The specifications and checkpoints in The Procurement Check are a distillation of well-known regulatory frameworks such as the ISO27000 series (SIS), Procurement Language for SCADA Systems (U.S. Department of Homeland Security) and Critical Security Controls (Sans Institute). The specifications have been processed, prioritised and reworded to make them simple and effective to apply in procurement situations.
