BSI收购AppSec Consulting公司,将其网络安全与信息恢复服务扩展到美国

发布时间: 2019-05-15 08:52:28   审校:睿智  

英国标准协会(BSI)今日宣布收购位于加利福尼亚州圣何塞的AppSec 咨询公司。该公司是一家从事网络安全与信息恢复(CSIR)的公司。这将使AppSec咨询公司成为BSI在CSIR服务方面的关键部分,该公司也将以AppSec咨询公司--BSI专业服务公司的名义运营。

对AppSec Consulting公司的收购将进一步加强BSI在美国的CSIR服务——这是引领在信息与网络安全最佳规范的发展与实施的重要市场之一。在全球范围内,BSI正迅速成为多个关键领域的CSIR服务领先供应者,其中包括网络安全、信息管理、数据隐私、电子发现与取证、员工安全意识与培训,以及BSI认可实验室提供的合规与测试服务。AppSec 咨询公司广泛的服务内容与BSI在英国和爱尔兰的现有团队提供的服务非常匹配,从而可以确保为在美国和欧洲同时运营的客户提供更为全面、更为优质的服务。

AppSec咨询公司成立于14年前,在美国的网络安全领域享有盛誉,为全国范围内的众多客户提供服务。该公司的最初业务专注于网络应用程序安全性、渗透测试和开发人员培训,后来则成功实现多样化服务——战略性网络安全、数据隐私和各种有关管理、风险和合规性的咨询服务。

BSI首席执行官霍华德·科尔(Howard Kerr)表示:“此次收购反映了我们的重要战略目标——拓展网络安全与信息恢复服务,为全球的组织机构建立一个卓越中心。AppSec 咨询公司是过去20年间兴起的最为专业的公司之一。该公司提供的服务与BSI在英国和爱尔兰的网络安全与信息恢复团队所提供的服务完美互补,再加上它在客户服务方面享有盛誉,使此次收购更显完美。”

AppSec 咨询公司总裁布莱恩·伯塔奇尼(Brian Bertacini)表示:“与BSI合并,这是AppSec咨询公司顺理成章的下一步工作,为我们的客户和员工都提供了重大的机遇。我们很高兴能从BSI的全球网络和更广泛的服务中获益,再加上我们已经得到证明的网络安全专业技能,这将使我们更进一步地发展和繁荣。”

全球范围内存在着对企业信息的有效管理和安全进行咨询的大量需求。BSI目前在美国已有提供知识、保险与监管服务的企业,而此次对AppSec咨询公司的收购将支持BSI在此基础上拓展其在美国的专业服务活动。

科尔(Howard Kerr)总结道:“随着各组织机构持续加强网络防御,并不断意识到真正的信息恢复所能提供的机遇,这一领域只会更进一步地发展。随着AppSec 咨询公司加入我们的团队,我们可以提供全面的信息恢复服务,以减轻网络威胁,并支撑企业强劲地发展。” 想获悉更多的国内外标准信息,请访问中国标准信息服务网(<https://www.sacinfo.cn>)。

BSI expands its Cybersecurity and Information Resilience offering to the US with the acquisition of AppSec Consulting

BSI, the business improvement company, today announced the acquisition of AppSec Consulting – a cybersecurity and information resilience (CSIR) company – located in San Jose, California. This will see AppSec Consulting become a key part of BSI’s CSIR offering and will operate under the name “AppSec Consulting – a BSI Professional Services Company”.

The acquisition of AppSec Consulting further strengthens BSI’s CSIR services in the United States – one of the key markets that is leading the development and implementation of information and cybersecurity best practice. Globally, BSI is fast becoming one of the leading providers of CSIR services in several key areas including cybersecurity, information management, data privacy, eDiscovery and forensics, employee security awareness and training alongside the compliance and testing services provided by BSI’s accredited laboratories. AppSec Consulting’s wide range of services are an excellent match to those offered by the existing BSI CSIR team in the UK and Ireland, ensuring a strengthened, rounded offering for our clients who operate in both the US and Europe.

Established 14 years ago, AppSec Consulting has a strong reputation in the US cybersecurity sector, servicing a wide range of clients across the country. The business was initially focused on web application security, penetration testing, and developer training and has since successfully diversified into providing strategic cybersecurity, data privacy, and a range of governance, risk and compliance advisory services.

Howard Kerr, Chief Executive at BSI, says: “This acquisition is reflective of our key strategic aim to expand our cybersecurity and information resilience offering, building a centre of excellence for organizations globally. AppSec Consulting is one of the most professional companies to emerge in the last 20 years. Their services perfectly complement those offered by the BSI Cybersecurity and Information Resilience teams in the UK and Ireland, which together with their reputation for excellence in client service, makes this a perfect match.”

Brian Bertacini, President at AppSec Consulting, says: “Merging with BSI is the natural next step for AppSec Consulting, providing huge opportunity for both our clients and employees alike. We are delighted to benefit from BSI’s global reach and broader range of services, which – when combined with our proven cybersecurity expertise – will allow us to further expand and flourish.”

There is a significant global demand for consultancy in the effective management and security of corporate information.  The acquisition of AppSec Consulting will support BSI’s expansion of its Professional Services activities in parallel with its existing Knowledge, Assurance and Regulatory Services businesses in the US. 

Kerr concluded: “This sector will only grow further, as organizations continue to bolster their cyber defences and recognize the opportunities that true resilience can unlock. With AppSec Consulting joining our team, we can offer the full spectrum of information resilience services to mitigate against cyber threats and support robust business growth.”
