Cyber Security

Secure Enterprise Data. Act on Trusted Information

  • Mitigate risks of enterprise data breach from cyber threats

  • Detect data governance policy violations from internal users

  • Comply with a wide range of regulatory mandates

Data breaches are growing, from theft of trade secrets to loss of customer information. Corporate audit committees are beginning to focus on the impact of cybersecurity on their organization's financial well-being. Leading organizations are seeking ways to protect non-public information as part of their strategic plan. They are also looking at risk-mitigation plans for responding to a possible breach. Corporate boards and audit committees are taking a greater interest in cybersecurity risks to carry out their fiduciary responsibilities. They must also protect the company from possible shareholder lawsuits that allege the company's cybersecurity wasn't at a level that could be reasonably viewed to be 'commercially reasonable' and that incident response plans were not in place to mitigate the risk.

The malicious insider remains a serious threat to cyber security, as well. A significant number of data breaches come at the hands of people on the inside. As the federal government and individual states add muscle to privacy breach notification laws and enforcement regimes, these hidden insider attacks are becoming more widely known. The SEC now requires breach disclosure of 'material losses' which compels the company to be more transparent and answerable for allowing bad actors to go unpunished.

Cybersecurity risk is increasing with the adoption of Cloud and BYOD which is uncharted, unregulated and faces few restrictions. Organizations must mitigate this risk by updating their corporate policies, IT security and risk-management plans to fulfill their legal obligations. SafePaaS Risk Advisors are independent industry experts that work with internal IT security teams to manage cybersecurity risks. We also collaborate with management teams including general counsel, information security and human resources to ensure a risk-based response to security threats.
