Posted in About system

Thanks to the OSCAD system the organization:

  • acquires systematized knowledge about conducted processes as well as used and processed information,
  • identifies factors that may disturb its business processes or threaten the processed information,
  • can react efficiently to crisis situations,
  • lowers costs and shortens the time of recovery in crisis situations,
  • has a documented risk management process and threat protection status,
  • if a problem occurs, the organization can prove it has undertaken proper actions based on acknowledged standards and best practices.

An organization which implements the OSCAD system gets equipped with certain measures that:

  • limit the number of incidents and volume of resulting losses,
  • allow to monitor expenditure on security to make it adequate to the incurred risks,
  • strengthen the organization's good image among business partners and customers.

System applications

Posted in About system

OSCAD has been designed for organizations whose functioning depends on business continuity and whose information resources need to be protected. These requirements are particularly important for organizations working in such sectors as power engineering, industrial production, transport, telecommunications, finances, public administration, health protection, utilities provision, communal economy, and rescue services. Thus the system is particularly suitable for organizations which:

  • have expanded co-operation links,
  • work within supply chains,
  • work according to the Just-In-Time system,
  • are strongly dependent on their technological systems, including IT systems,
  • provide e-services,
  • process sensitive data (personal, medical, financial, etc),
  • are part of national critical infrastructures.
