Information Security: A Service Level Agreement Priority

One of the top priorities of any organization is data integrity and security. Being free from threats that can be caused by the outside world can assure the confidentiality of information, resulting in better strategic plans in moving the business forward. Piracy is a hindrance to company’s success. With a lot of businesses coming in and out of the circle, only a few survive, especially those which are equipped with new concepts and innovations being introduced to the market. Originality comes first to stay on top of the stiff mountain of competition. So how can one company assure information security? One of the answers is a service level agreement or SLA.

At any given point of time, a client may require a service provider to enter its premises. It could be due to system maintenance or hardware / software conflicts that require an expert(s) in performing a specific task. It is the responsibility of the customer to provide temporary access to ensure that the provider’s representative has access to its facilities and resources. On the other hand, it is also the provider’s duty to comply with the client’s security policies and procedures as a respect to the agreement set by SLA.

Security is a really huge concern in today’s business environment. Allowing intruders to obtain information or data is like committing suicide, not only for you but the company as well. Protection should always be made available to reduce potential legal liabilities. Inadequate security can jeopardize your business so proper delegation, either internal or external, is a must on every organization.
