First Home Bank Selects Securance Consulting

First Home Bank has selected Securance, an IT Risk Management consulting firm, to assist in its IT security initiatives.

Bank information systems are rapidly expanding, especially with the popularity of mobile‐banking. Such expansion opens the door to a host of threats, including ACH and wire‐related fraud. Financial institutions, like First Home Bank, must employ solutions that effectively protect sensitive financial data.

With the exponential growth of technologies, IT security has become a critical component in every organization’s risk management strategy. Many companies lack an understanding of where their systems are vulnerable and of how to adequately protect their systems. “Too many companies underestimate the risks posed to their networks and data by both external and internal threats,” said Paul Ashe, President of Securance Consulting and a Sr. IT Risk Management Consultant.

Securance Consulting helps organizations manage the risks associated with technology, including network security, web‐ app security, virtual technology security, wireless security, general computer controls, software compliance, wireless deployments, and business continuity.

In every industry, technology is pervasive. Experienced consultants, like those at Securance, can help companies identify the technology risk and the appropriate remediations, at a significant cost‐benefit to the organization.
