How secure is your critical business data?
“Secure” for most organisations usually means three things:
- Can the IT team or, more importantly, users access our critical business data when they need to?
- Will our data be protected from unauthorised access or outright theft?
- Will our data be there if something goes wrong? For example, what happens to our data when computers fail?
Data security means looking the entire infrastructure holistically, from how the data is created or acquired to how it is valued, stored, accessed and disposed of. It requires the disciplines of information lifecycle management, network security and business continuity planning.
To answer these questions Fordway offers a number of services:

Through assessment and gap analysis of current storage infrastructure, data management tools, processes and service delivery objectives, long term strategy can be rationalised with other strategic data centre initiatives
IT GOVERNANCE – DATA SECURITY
This service examines IT management processes, regulatory culture and best practice in terms of data value and security.
BUSINESS CONTINUANCE PROCESS PLANNING
Fordway reviews and develops business continuance and disaster recovery strategies that ensure true data protection and security are maintained.
