Risky Business—Why Data Security is Mission Critical in Consulting

Date: Thursday, November 10, 2016 @ 1PM EST

As companies move forward with digital transformations, including cloud, mobile, and the Internet of Things deployments, their risk profile is becoming more complex because the technology environment becomes increasingly fragmented. Increasing data collection, storage, and sharing adds access points along with additional risk, as do employees with devices connected to the corporate network.

To manage the increase in risk, companies have begun to ramp up their cybersecurity capabilities. Are your clients ready? Now more than ever, clients are looking to consultants to help them develop strategies to efficiently and cost effectively add or enhance detection, monitoring and response capabilities. Firms that understand the threat landscape, the changing risk profiles and the strategies for managing data security risk are guiding clients through IT investment and process decisions to help them establish or advance their SOC functions. Is your firm ready?
