Hitachi Systems Security and Hitachi Data Systems Launch Information Security Service Offering Across North America to Fight Cybercrime

Cyber threats are growing in size, severity and sophistication, and data breaches in high-profile U.S. corporations alone have resulted in billions of compromised records. Analysts report a rise in security software spending; however, as organizations upgrade their software to confront threats, cybercriminals devise new techniques to evade it. In partnership with Hitachi Systems Security and Hitachi Data Systems, businesses can better identify vulnerabilities as they arise, secure their critical data assets, avoid onerous fines from failure to meet stringent compliance requirements, and build and implement comprehensive security programs.

“In today’s landscape of high-impact cyber threats and skyrocketing cybercriminal activity, businesses have increasing pressure to withstand unexpected security events, avoid threats to corporate and customer data assets, and protect their brands and reputations,” said Ray Georges Chehata, president and CEO of Hitachi Systems Security. “As organizations dive deeper into digital transformation processes, our partnership with Hitachi Data Systems offers North American organizations a security service that will save them costs, secure their operations and strengthen their security posture toward cybercrime.”

Security experts from Hitachi Systems Security and Hitachi Data Systems work with companies to learn how they operate and how much risk they can tolerate. Using industry-leading control frameworks such as ISO and NIST, the team then assesses control maturity and gaps. Based on the results, Hitachi Systems Security and Hitachi Data Systems provide services to defend against cybercrime and data theft, including security program reviews and designs, IT security governance consulting, risk and control assessments, PCI compliance consulting, vulnerability and application assessments and penetration testing.

Hitachi Systems Security-Hitachi Data Systems information security services are available now for organizations in financial services, government, telecommunications and other industries across North America.
