Are your IT systems vulnerable? Are you aware of the consequences of IT risk?

IT Security and Risk affects businesses of every size. Your organization may have a lot at stake. Did you know that noncompliance can result in substantial fines? For example:

  • A restaurant was fined $110,000 for failing to protect patrons’ personal information.
  • A property management company was fined $15,000 for inadequately protecting unencrypted personal information.
  • A hospital agreed to pay a $1.5 million fine for a HIPAA violation as a result of a stolen laptop.

In addition to fines you may incur damage to your reputation, lost revenue and the costs of remediation.
