Overview

Brown Smith Wallace risk advisory services helps our clients prevent information security attacks and data exposures that challenge organizations. The goal is to effectively manage and control these risks. All too often, organizations are unaware of the information security risks they face, and are unable to manage risks in the event of an information security and privacy breach.

Businesses may face potential litigation, regulatory fines, and reputation issues if sensitive information is not properly protected. The risks are typically higher in industries with complex regulatory requirements, in organizations that are unable to determine what constitutes sensitive data and in organizations that lack an integrated approach to data privacy.

Our team of highly experienced security & privacy professionals will examine your critical business systems and determine the level of exposure you have to internal and external threats. We provide a wide array of security and privacy services listed below to assist organizations in identifying and addressing potential security exposures, such as loss of customer data, loss of revenue and reputation damage, before they become problems.  Our services include:
