Information security is a hot topic in the realm of regulatory risk. Companies need experts to help them understand and comply with the ever-changing regulations within the cybersecurity and data privacy space.
Now, as we approach the one year mark since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became effective on May 25, 2018, and as we draw closer to the May 1, 2020 effective date of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), organizations need to understand the data that they collect, store and destroy as well as the consent required to do so. Sophisticated info security risk assessments help your organization determine what you have of value, how it can be attacked, what you would lose if attacked, and how to address the vulnerabilities.
Great Lakes Forensics can help you audit, test, report and manage your security features in order to comply with HIPAA, PCI, FISMA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and Gramm-Leach-Bliley.
Today, insurance carriers should be assessing the level of security in organizations they are underwriting. They can do this with the help of Great Lakes Forensics to better assess the level of risk of the potential insured. We review the SANS 20 Critical Factors for securing an organization’s IT resources. Furthermore, we review potential cyber-attack vectors, security patch levels, network security, infrastructure best practices, encryption usage, virus protection, access management, network security, and regulatory compliance.
Keep in mind that if you believe that small businesses are immune from cyber-attacks, or that hackers only target big companies, you are putting yourself at risk. Our assessment of an organization’s data risk and security can help you plan short-term, intermediate and long-term risk management strategies.
