Compliance Counseling and Risk/Security Assessment

Overview

Businesses, government entities, and public and private institutions now know that security incidents involving the unauthorized access to their customer, employee, or sensitive business data are inevitable. They need to guard an ever-increasing number of endpoints and manage online access by cloud services and other vendors while dealing with budgetary constraints and the fact that systems are built and maintained by fallible individuals. We help companies become “compromise ready” by leveraging our unrivaled incident response experience to help them improve the people, processes, and technology they use to safeguard sensitive data. We design our tailored, proactive compliance services to prevent incidents, help companies avoid regulatory scrutiny, and prepare them to respond efficiently and effectively when a potential incident is detected.

Our lawyers, including two CISSPs, have the technical knowledge to help clients with security enhancements such as encryption, tokenization, and point-to-point encryption (P2PE). We help companies enhance their ability to detect and respond to incidents by revising their incident response plans, designing and conducting tabletop exercises featuring realistic mock-breach scenarios, and partnering with forensic and crisis communications firms to provide focused training to their incident response teams. We conduct four-hour workshops on incident response best practices, which we have used to train more than 100 companies. We also brief and train executive leadership teams and boards of directors.
