Privacy and Security

Damage Done by Security and Privacy Breaches

Any organization that collects or maintains privacy data, including personally identifiable information (PII), personal healthcare information (PHI) both domestically and internationally, must be sure that such information is secured and remains private. Additionally, organizations need to manage and control intellectual property, trade secrets and other types of corporate confidential data. But growing volumes of unmanaged electronic information, coupled with interactions among customers, partners, government agencies and employees raise opportunities for breaches of privacy and confidentiality. Such failures can result in penalties, expense and reputational damage.

Assert Control over Sensitive Information

Contoural helps clients understand legislative requirements and corporate policies that affect the security and accountability protected information. Following a thorough assessment of current privacy and security practices, we develop procedures to place and maintain each class of information in repositories that provide the required controls and safeguards. We fully document the processes and work with clients to monitor the effectiveness of the controls to protect against privacy and security breaches. Furthermore, we create strategies that complement and avoid undermining day-to-day business processes. With a metrics-based information governance strategy in place, clients can expect to reduce the amount of sensitive but uncontrolled information to negligible levels.

Why Contoural?

Contoural’s services can be tailored either for some part of a specific project or an entire enterprise-wide program. We help clients evaluate their existing privacy programs, recommend improvements and measure progress as part of a strategic plan for the protection of sensitive information assets.
