In today’s digital economy, businesses are under increasing scrutiny from consumers, regulators and others about their ability to protect data. The myriad of risks to data being faced by businesses as they collect, use and store data can be daunting as well as costly especially if they suffer a data breach. Moreover, businesses are facing a mountain of compliance requirements that can be difficult to understand and implement.

Innovation has transformed how personal information is consumed. If your business collects, uses, stores or shares personal information from customers or employees, then you are likely subject to any number of legal requirements. The privacy landscape has a myriad of local and international requirements that businesses must understand and abide by. Those requirements mandate that businesses implement strong privacy and security controls for the protection of that information. You must also know what information you collect, under what circumstances, the required disclosures that you must provide, your limitations to use that information, and more. Failure to adhere to these requirements exposes your business to innumerable risks potentially resulting in regulatory sanctions, class action lawsuits, or worse - a data breach.
Security Validation sets itself apart from other advisory firms by also offering a suite of managed cyber-security services. Services such as firewall management, intrusion detection, data leak prevention, penetration testing, 24x7 monitoring and many more. By availing your business of our managed services, you shift the responsibility of securing your infrastructure to us. We work diligently to defend your perimeter with proprietary tools and resources so you can free up valuable staff for other important tasks.
We are all too familiar with well known businesses who find themselves the focus of media, regulators, congress and consumers resulting from highly publicized data breaches. These companies suffer major repercussions ranging from regulatory sanctions, class actions, loss of revenue, declining stock price and brand damage. What’s not well known is that regulators, partners, and plaintiff’s lawyers will all seek to evaluate your efforts and the controls you had in place to prevent the breach in the first place. Any gaps will be used against you. Moreover, there are a plethora of breach notification statutory obligations that are time sensitive and can subject your business to heightened penalties for any delays. Security Validation’s experts can help you to implement a breach response program that will position your company to effectively respond to a reported data breach.
