Enterprise Risk Security
Maintaining the integrity of your organization’s data and your customer’s data requires experience and expertise. Many organizations often overlook the importance of managing their data and are susceptible to data breaches and exploiting the organization’s sensitive information, including customer data. Having the right internal controls in place protects both parties and enhances customer confidence. There are many standards, laws and regulations in place that organizations are required to meet and remain compliant with. Failure to hold the appropriate reports and certifications (i.e. HIPAA – Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996) can result in multi million-dollar fines.
