IT Risk, Data Privacy & Security

IT Risk Solutions that help you build trust with your clients and partners

The foundation of a sound information technology strategy begins with having proper governance in place. 

Without an established set of objectives, performance targets, and policies that your employees, third parties, and stakeholders adhere to, it’s impossible to manage risk levels for implementing and managing technology, especially in the event of a system outage or malicious attack. 

Today, your boards, clients, vendors, and insurers all have expectations of proper governance over your technology stack. Bringing in a trusted advisor to assess and craft a strategic improvement program is essential to implementing and maintaining meaningful IT practices.

Data Privacy & Security

Personal information is valuable, and regulations, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), increase the demand that this type of data be handled according to certain standards and that organizations accept ownership of how they collect, use, and transmit the information of individuals. Our team manages an inventory of personal information in your environment and identifies how your current process involves collection, use, sales, and sharing of that information. After identifying gaps between existing processes and applicable regulatory requirements, we help you develop and monitor your privacy compliance program and provide ongoing privacy program management.
