Today, with the introduction of RSA Business-Driven Security, we also introduced the RSA Risk and Cybersecurity Practice. This Practice includes more than 650 globally deployed, employee-based cybersecurity and risk experts to help our clients operationalize their unique business-driven security strategy. Our primary tenant is enabling and accelerating the business while reducing risk, thus creating the foundation for a client's risk and/or cybersecurity program. RSA helps clients operationalize their program through maturing and optimizing their risk management, identity assurance, fraud prevention, and threat detection and response programs. Moreover, because attackers are known to actively exploit the gaps between these historically discrete solutions, we act as the glue to connect these programs into a comprehensive and exponentially more resilient system.
Industrywide, organizations struggle to address risk and cybersecurity in a way that effectively and efficiently meets the needs of the business, organization or government agency. As a services organization, RSA's customers' success is the most crucial factor in our own success. It's widely accepted that security isn't simply a matter of technology and products. People and process are equally important (if not more crucial) for the ultimate success of any program or project. A fundamental understanding and analysis of business requirements, gaps, resources, and processes are compulsory for formulating, executing, sustaining and achieving a successful outcome for any risk and/or cyber security program. With over 1,000 active projects on any given day, and over 2,500 unique project engagements per year, RSA has one of the most seasoned teams of experts and proven approaches to applying a success-based methodology.
Our expert practitioners facilitate and support ongoing strategic relationships with our customers in both advisory and tactical capacities. These engagements also provide a broader benefit, beyond delivering better services, by providing guidance and insight to RSA on the future direction of our products and continual tuning of our best practices.
