Security Architecture

A well-designed security architecture is still one of the most critical security program components. Threats and vulnerabilities continuously evolve, the velocity and complexity of attacks never stop increasing, yet many security incidents stem from failures in foundational practices that have existed for many years.

Data Protection & Privacy

The ethical use of data has been a personal passion for many years. If you don’t have a justifiable business use for the data, don’t capture it, store it, or process it, even if no law or regulation prevents you from using it. Doing the right thing can reduce your risk and build long-lasting relationships with your customers.

Today, it could not be more accurate with the increase in work-from-home, access from almost anywhere, and a shift to cloud-based services and applications. Role-based identity management is still necessary, but it is not enough for your most sensitive data.

If you give a monkey a hammer, someone is going to get hurt. Chances are, it’s not the monkey. Sensitive data in the wrong hands can be disastrous. We must do better to protect those with access from those who want to take that access and misuse it. Legacy access controls are simply not enough anymore.
