The increased reliance on digital resources and the sharing of secure data worldwide is accompanied by an elevated risk of data and compliance breaches. The US and global regulatory landscape is constantly evolving to combat expanding digital threats, and companies that do not take a proactive approach to privacy and security are frequently left to pick up the pieces.
PorzioCS assists companies in developing and implementing secure data privacy and cybersecurity practices while ensuring regulatory compliance. Our interdisciplinary team of compliance professionals leverage decades of relationships with government agencies, industry experts and policy groups to provide our clients a complete solution, from assessment through implementation and training.
Privacy and cybersecurity breaches are a pervasive threat to all businesses, regardless of size, industry and location. Regulatory frameworks continue to evolve and companies are struggling to understand the myriad laws and regulations that may govern the privacy and security of their physical and electronic data. Based on a company's locations, where its customers reside, and the type of data it collects and where it is stored, a single company can be subject to regulations of the US, multiple different states, the EU and other nations. As new examples of security breach consequences arise nearly daily, the business risk from loss of data is real.
