Gaining Control: A Security Risk Assessment and Management Kit
Members tell us that executive management is leaning heavily on IT teams to implement programs that address security risks. To tackle this complicated priority, Wisegate hosted a survey to find out how senior IT professionals are pinpointing, addressing and communicating top security concerns to teams and board members. We packaged the insight into an easy-to-download kit for your convenience!

DIRECT FROM THE MOUTH OF WISEGATE MEMBERS
We love hearing feedback on how Wisegate is helping IT professionals like you. Here are a couple of stories we heard recently:

WISEGATE COMMUNITY: LOYAL MEMBERS

Actions speak louder than words and when it comes to loyalty, we've got the best members out there. One member was the CIO in the leisure and travel industry and moved on to become the Global Director of Software Solutions at a different company in the retail industry. Though this member changed positions, businesses, and industries – their loyalty to Wisegate never changed. The member secured their membership at the new company and stayed with us because of the results and resources they received.

WISEGATE COLLECTIONS: THE "PINTEREST OF IT"

A Wisegate member was tasked by his CEO to implement bring your own device (BYOD) security policies to allow employee-owned mobile devices on the corporate network. His personal Wisegate concierge posted questions and polls about BYOD to get answers from other members and followed up with a Wisegate Roundtable to dig deeper with members on BYOD experiences and policies. With information from question/poll answers along with a phone call, the member was able to write his BYOD policy, pick a vendor (skipping an expensive POC), and save his company seven months of work, and thousands of dollars. The curated content that resulted from this member's research is now available for members to bookmark and save within their their Wisegate Collections, a feature that allows members to collect, organize, archive and share Wisegate knowledge and content, as well as resources from around the web.
