Best Risk Management/Regulatory Compliance Solution


June, 8th, 2017 – IRM is pleased to announce that SYNERGi – Cyber GRC Platform was recognised by a panel representing the audience of SC Media, as the winning solution in the EXCELLENCE AWARDS: INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP Best Risk Management/Regulatory Compliance Solution category at the 2017 SC Media Awards Europe. The announcement was made Tuesday, 6th June at the awards presentation held at Old Billingsgate, London.

Each year, hundreds of products are entered in the EXCELLENCE AWARDS: INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP categories. Each product is judged by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Media readership, which is comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets including financial services, healthcare, government, retail, education and other sectors. Entrants are narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category.

Charles White CEO said “winning the SC award underlines IRM’s belief that corporations cannot reliably and consistently manage their cyber security programmes via spreadsheets. SYNERGI has been developed specifically to bring rigour, control and visibility to an organisation’s cyber security program and thus enable Boards and operational staff alike to better understand and manage cyber security risk. This is of critical importance today where metrics to enable decisions around information risk management are increasingly important, where there is a regulatory obligation to demonstrate control, where third party and supply chain risk is largely ineffectually managed and where the Board is increasingly aware of its own duty of care over process, people, data and systems.  I am delighted SYNERGi has received this prestigious peer recognition”.

The SC Awards Europe are well known as one of the most prestigious awards for information technology (IT) security professionals and products. The awards recognise the best solutions, services and professionals that work around the clock to defend against the constantly shifting threat landscape in today’s marketplace.

“It is so important to encourage and praise innovation, recognise those who raise the bar, and reward exemplars who facilitate best practice. IRM SYNERGi is a great example of this within the industry.”
