Reduce breach risk and protect your brand image.
Franchise organizations and membership-based associations operate within a unique, distributed enterprise business model. With multiple independently-operated locations, these organizations can find it difficult to effectively monitor and control security risk and compliance throughout their business network.
In the distributed enterprise, establishing a workable, enforceable standard for organization-wide security and compliance is business critical:
- Independent locations are often too small to justify their own IT staff, leaving them without access to the appropriate level of security support and expertise;
- Each location has its own infrastructure and systems for carrying out business, and that infrastructure is growing in complexity as more and more devices, sensors and monitors are deployed and network-connected;
- The greater the number of people and locations, the more points of potential failure from the human element, volume of transactions, and the various internet-connected components within the organizational network; and
- There is potential for a “domino effect,” where attackers who compromise a single location exploit the same vulnerabilities across others in the chain. The corporate brand experiences significant damage when this occurs.
