Businesses are voraciously adopting new, enabling technologies to remain competitive, and too often security is an afterthought – reactive, rearguard, tactical and disjointed. When this happens, security risk increases across a vast digital landscape that includes on-premises, cloud, IoT and other environments.


Effective data governance is foundational to driving the rapid decision-making and adaptable risk strategies that build cyber resilience and help organizations plan for the unprecedented. However, many organizations don’t fully understand where the data is, how it’s protected and who has access to it. This lack of visibility makes it nearly impossible to make good, risk-based decisions.


Our Privacy and Governance services help organizations understand how security risk is business risk. We craft risk management processes and solutions assuring security team integration at a strategic level so organizations can make timely decisions, evaluate current risk vs. acceptable risk and drive a cohesive cybersecurity program that builds critical resilience in people, process and technology.
