Data Security & Compliance

Data Security & Compliance

In today’s fast paced and dynamic world, data security is of the utmost importance. A breach of sensitive financial, proprietary, or personal information can result in legal penalties, business interruptions, theft of intellectual property, or even the loss of the business entirely.

Most organization are bound by state and federal privacy laws at a minimum. HIPAA, the Heath Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, and other standards for the protection of personal information, set strict standards for protecting sensitive data. Companies that deal with protected sensitive data must ensure that all required physical and virtual processes and safeguards are compliant.
