Most organizations require some level of personally identifiable information (PII) or personal health information (PHI) for business operations. This information comes from partners, clients, and customers. Information such as social security number, tax identification number, date of birth, driver’s license number, passport details, medical history, etc. are all considered confidential information. You should always have a Security Audit to confirm that you are compliant. Make sure that your staff members are receiving the proper security awareness training, and in some cases purchase Cyber Insurance to mitigate the risks.
As such, organizations creating, storing, or transmitting confidential data should undergo a risk assessment. Risk assessments are required by a number of laws, regulations, and standards. Some of the governing bodies that require security risk assessments include HIPAA, GDPR, and FERPA.
Our PII Risk Assessment will provide a comprehensive overview and understanding of all the PII an organization manages, how it’s transferred, and the security procedures and systems safeguarding it. Knowing what physical and cyber security controls are in place, our security experts will identify the biggest risks and catalogue security breaches. With the questions removed, the focus can be located squarely on where improvements are needed. In addition, industry-standard policies on data management and compromise procedures will be provided so that old policies can be reviewed and updated and disseminated throughout the organization.
