Verizon Business has launched an enhanced and expanded version of its IT security consulting services. Called Data Discovery, Identification and Security Classification (DDISC), the services address the heightened risk businesses face because they often do not know where all of their data resides or what the data contains.

For two-thirds of the data involved in breaches that Verizon Business investigated in its "2009 Data Breach Investigations Report," the breached organization did not know the data even existed on its systems.

The DDISC services – which are immediately available in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region – discover, identify and classify data stored on a business’ servers and extended network.

The DDISC also helps organizations manage compliance with security standards and regulations such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA).

Previously, Verizon Business had offered its security consulting services to businesses on a custom basis. (For more, click here).
