Information Governance

An organization’s information is one of its most valuable assets, and, as such, is one of its most vulnerable. The threat to information can be measured in many ways, from careless handling of data to the ongoing efforts of malicious actors to exploit, alter, or exfiltrate data.

Our experts help clients build effective information governance and compliance programs to fit their specific needs and manage the information lifecycle from inception to deletion. Potential elements of any successful data governance program may include network/system architecture, data classification and movement, storage, security, and removal.

We provide strategic guidance to organizations regarding the proper storage of company information in an easily navigable, logical, and accessible manner and ensure that sensitive company data, including personally identifiable information (PII) and intellectual property, remains protected. Our team delivers expertise in efficient record storing and retrieval procedures, which can help to optimize eDiscovery processes by making data analysis quicker and more comprehensive. We also help clients migrate their data into cloud-based applications and secure company data on employee devices.

Regulatory Compliance – Corporate Digital Records

Our data privacy and information governance experts work with clients to customize their business operations in light of potential litigation, regulatory inquiries, and resource requirements. We couple digital forensics knowledge with investigative expertise, such as analyzing data and examining physical and digital evidence, to uncover the facts around information governance requirements such as those involving defensible disposition, secure deletions, and remediation efforts.

Data Privacy Compliance

Our data privacy experts not only work to maintain compliance within essential regulatory frameworks around the world, but also deliver solutions to protect the sensitive information of your organization’s employees and customers. For needs such as Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR) or Cookie Consent and Compliance Management, we are retained to perform assessments of current data privacy procedures and offer strategic guidance on remediating gaps and offer ongoing monitoring and review. Our experts routinely provide guidance and strategic solutions within privacy regulation frameworks and seamlessly adjust to new and pending consumer privacy laws implemented per region.

We routinely design and implement solutions that address regional and global privacy regulations to enhance personal data and privacy practices across an organization's infrastructure. Our approach includes identifying areas of potential risk and recommending policy and system adjustments, modifications, and updates to existing privacy programs, or otherwise working closely with privacy stakeholders within an organization to develop sound policies and programs from inception to execution.

Working with clients, we develop protocols and recommendations which enable compliance with applicable regulatory requirements, including General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), as well as other current and pending state/jurisdictional privacy-related regulations.
