ASG uses the term Global Security Network as a means to describe how they work with its current vendor partner community and its future partners.
The underlying premise of this collaborative body is to break down the walls between the disciplines thereby increasing the effectiveness and value of security within their organization. To do this requires a highly leveraged and collaborative model for investing and delivering on the critical value steps that every organization must address to ensure that its risk and security plan is aligned with and drives key organizational objectives.
Using this methodology will deliver a consistent and predictable experience in mitigating risks and supporting organizational objectives. Without this, each step is a silo that potentially creates risk and/or decreases the effectiveness of the organization.
