During a recent conversation with a client, their Chief Information Officer told us “as soon as I get one auditor out the door, another walks in”. In a world that is driven by complex and ever-changing technologies, audits are inevitable and audit fatigue is an unfortunate reality. This isn’t limited to CIO’s… as practitioners in this space, we experience the same. So that got us thinking… what if there was a better way to manage an information security program and auditor interactions? What would that look like? Our answer to these questions is a tool we call “illumino”.
Over the years, we’ve gone through numerous iterations of illumino and we continue to evolve the tool to meet the demands of changing markets, security and compliance frameworks, business operations, and communications expectations. To illustrate, as of this writing, our latest version encompasses 151 enhancements since it’s initial release in February 2017. That equates to an update about every 3 days!
We’re very excited about the current version and its capabilities to increase visibility and accountability of an information security program and related audit, communication, documentation, and management aspects. We’re also passionate about keeping the tool simple to use! In this blog series, we’ll be highlighting some of the key features of illumino and how we’re working to create a better security and compliance assessment experience for everyone… stay tuned!
