IT threats abound. Are you prepared?

What are the risks to your business if your information technology systems are compromised? Today, nearly every organization uses some type of software environment and no one is isolated from IT risks. Protecting sensitive personal and financial data is serious business. Trust the Risk Services team to help you prepare for multiple threats.

News of data breaches and identity theft have become all too common. When your databases are full of employee and customer information, how do you ensure you’re not the next target?

Many businesses, not-for-profit organizations and governments are challenged by their lack of understanding or pertinent training. Financial resources further exacerbate the issue. Outdated technology environments can have design flaws that create huge risk. And do you have the right people in place to ensure your IT needs are being met?

Schenck’s Risk Services team has the expertise to help you evaluate and manage your IT risks and controls.

How do we add value?

  • IT security assessments. Hackers and disgruntled employees are becoming increasingly sophisticated and dangerous. These threats require an inspection of your IT systems, applications and data. An IT security assessment is designed to identify where security gaps exist. We evaluate their impact on the financial and operational integrity of your organization. You will receive a suggested schedule of high-risk and high-value IT audits and a report highlighting any identified deficiencies in the design of your current IT controls. Penetration, vulnerability and PCI Compliance services provided for comprehensive risk identification to aid in closing.
  • IT auditing services. These services focus on IT general controls, application controls and specialized reviews such as, vendor management, business continuity/disaster recovery and IT governance and architecture.
  • IT regulatory compliance services. We can assist your external regulation and internal standard compliance efforts, such as GLBA, FERPA, PCI and NERC by supporting your current team, by assessing the design of IT controls under review, or by evaluating the evidence used to support your company’s audit and regulatory reviews.
  • SOC reports. Reassure customers that your financial, operational and IT controls have been objectively examined by an independent audit firm.
  • HIPAA reports. Reassure customers that your processes, operational and IT controls have been objectively examined by an independent audit firm and comply with HIPAA, HITCH and Omnibus rules.
  • Internal control and continuous improvement reviews. Today, innovation is a competitive differentiator. Schenck is well-positioned to evaluate your IT and business processes and identify opportunities for you to be more efficient and effective—as well as reduce risk.
