Infosecurity: Unisys minding the security gap

Thursday, 12 December 2002, 12:05 PM EST

With fresh statistics that show gaping holes in the security preparedness of companies, Unisys Corp. announced a new initiative Wednesday that will realign that company's consulting services and offerings.

In a statement timed to coordinate with the Infosecurity 2002 IT show in New York City, Unisys unveiled a new offering called Zero-Gap Security Planning and named Sunil Misra, a 13-year Unisys veteran, to head the new group.

Misra will be responsible for rolling out the new program to Unisys's clients worldwide, according to Unisys, which is based in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania.

The new paradigm was developed in response to surveys conducted by Unisys that measured the security readiness of companies against industry standards and regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the ISO 17799 security standard. Those internal studies showed a large percentage of companies had significant security problems and had few measures in place to address them, according to Unisys.
