Your business can avail itself of our expertise and vast suite of tools that can be leveraged and tailored to fit your business model.  We’ll work with your internal compliance, legal or technical staff training them to manage risk. 

We can devise and help you implement a Risk Management framework to detect, remediate, monitor and report privacy or security related risks. 

Whether it’s a program implemented to manage privacy or security risk, Security Validation can work with your internal teams to develop an organizational program.  Such programs are critical for understanding what data you have and where it is, what the risks are to that data, develop processes and controls to monitor those risks.

Having a solid risk management program is a major component towards demonstrating to regulators and others that you exercised due diligence to reduce your data risk as well as to comply with the relevant law, regulation and framework. 

Security Validation’s compliance experts can perform onsite or remote gap analyses and assessments; process & controls design; privacy and security training; custom policies, processes, procedures; technical evaluation of your systems, and much more.
