Today’s IT environment is complex and while some companies embrace the dynamic nature of constantly changing systems and requirements, others struggle to keep up.  Our IT and Security services are like our clients’ systems environments: complex and diverse.

With the recent media attention on system attacks and data breaches, executives understand the need to safeguard proprietary and customer data. Another significant area of concern is IT compliance; with the constantly changing nature of the regulatory environment, there are a lot of requirements that must be incorporated into a security program. Industries such as healthcare and financial services have been dealing with compliance for HIPAA and GLBA for years, but now there are laws at the state level and for foreign entities that must be considered, such as new cybersecurity regulations for New York state and Singapore, or the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  Furthermore, many of our clients want to use guidance provided by ISO or NIST, such as the Cybersecurity Framework, as the foundation of their security programs.

All of these aspects must be incorporated, balanced, and tracked for compliance – but where to start? We can help. We offer assistance with documentation, such as policies and procedures, and governance, including vendor management and incident response, disaster recovery, and business continuity.

Perhaps your concern is with the systems themselves. Many companies are realizing that technology can provide a competitive advantage, yet it can be a big undertaking to move away from the accounting software you’ve used for years, or the mainframe system that’s been in place for decades. We help our clients go through the process of selecting and implementing new systems. We do not sell hardware or software so that we can provide an unbiased opinion on the system that will be the best fit based on defined business requirements.

Of course, change is hard, and so once a new system is selected, we provide assistance with the conversion from the existing application and implementation of the new system. Once it’s up and running, we can also assist with a pre- or post-implementation review to ensure data was transferred completely and accurate, and the new system is functioning as expected before the final cutover to a live system. While our role varies based on each client’s unique needs, in each case our consulting and advisory services will help to ensure the process is as smooth as possible.
