NEW YORK, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --


Corporate executives and boards of directors realize that "checking the box" on security regulations and operating fragmented security compliance programs does not make a company resilient to hazards and broadly compliant. Management seeks confirmation and assurance that leading security practices address the needs of an organization and its clients' needs are satisfied on a real-time basis.


"Establishing a globally integrated IT management system and demonstrating that  an organization fluidly responds to the evolution and revolutionary shifts in the competitive landscape of information systems, including big data, cloud, and social networking, build trusts internally and externally," said James DeLuccia IV, director of CeritifyPoint LLC, a new affiliate of Ernst & Young LLP that works with companies in the US to focus on positioning, managing and utilizing certification frameworks and systems for information security management systems and IT service management systems.


Ernst & Young CertifyPoint LLC offers clients International Standardization Organization (ISO) certification services, including ISO 27001 (information security management system) and ISO 20000 (IT service management).
