GigaTrust and Modulo will work together to help companies assess their risks and adapt their security systems to the various international standards and regulations (ISO, COBIT, SOX, PCI) and to the Spanish legislation in effect, such as the Statutory Data Protection Law (LOPD). With the Modulo Risk Manager(TM) application, GigaTrust partners and customers in Spain will be able to detect not only an organization's risks associated with both technology (software and hardware) and non-technology assets -- including personnel, processes and its business environment -- but also its levels of compliance with standards and regulations.
Marie-Claire Pfeifer, Managing Director of GigaTrust Spain explained, "We are going to add planning and risk management to our corporate rights management (Intelligent Rights Management(TM)) through the Risk Manager solution from Modulo. This will allow GigaTrust to control not only information leaks but also to identify, plan and follow up on different risk areas."
Modulo's Risk Wizard technology allows reports to be created highlighting the risks to which companies are exposed, as well as providing recommendations to improve both their risk and compliance position. "The tool will enable them to discover their 'risk rating,' thereby minimizing the possibility of their information falling into the wrong hands. This will enable us to prevent the negative impact of confidential data loss and restricted access on our businesses. This is not just a question of financial loss but also damage to an organization's brand image and corporate identity," explained Pfeifer.
"With this type of initiative, GigaTrust is strengthening its commitment to ensuring that information is managed with adequate protective measures."
Mark Bardoe, Vice-President Europe for Modulo, pointed out that, "This agreement with GigaTrust Spain is part of our growth strategy in EMEA and will be a key alliance in the international risk management area.
We are delighted to be collaborating with GigaTrust Spain as our main partner in the Spanish market to work together on new solutions that improve business risk and compliance management."
