Protect Your Network and
Your Clients' Data
Are you aware that your biggest asset (people) is also your biggest risk? Did you know that a cyber-attack is much easier than cyber-defense? Information security is not just an IT issue, it's an organizational issue. Strong information security can prevent and mitigate the impact of security incidents while consistently maintaining customer confidence. Weak information security increases a system's vulnerability to a potential security incident. The impact from a security incident may be exponential and long lasting—financial loss, legal actions, compromised reputation, and loss of goodwill with customers. Recovery from a security incident is complex, costly, and time consuming. Prevention through proper structuring of an information security program is critical. Let Paragon position your company with a competitive advantage by providing security services that align and strengthen the three pillars of information security: people, processes, and technology.
The DoD has Sanctioned Commercial Cloud Services
The chart on the right shows the projected growth in the cloud services market. The Department of Defense (DoD) is aware of this and recognizes the benefits of cloud computing.
On July 23, 2014 the DoD, which had been the most reluctant to adopt commercial cloud services, published the DoD Cloud Way Forward to "provide clear guidance to the Cloud Service Providers and to Department of Defense customer organizations in support of the DoD Chief Information Officer's (CIO) goal to accelerate the adoption of cloud computing within the DoD."
You can increase your company's bottom line by providing cloud services to the Federal Government, but to do so you need Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) accreditation. The federal government has recognized the cost savings and reliability advantages of cloud computing and has created the FedRAMP office to evaluate and accredit cloud service providers who wish to provide services to federal agencies. Paragon Security Services (PSSPSS is certified to assess potential cloud service providers as part of the FedRAMP authorization process.
Strong security controls protect your system. Compliant security controls lead to your system attaining accreditation. Paragon can ensure your system has both. Paragon has processes, procedures, and experienced security services staff to drive your enterprise security to meet National Institute of Technology (NIST), Department of Defense (DoD) and ISO 27001 security standards.
