WS+B Information Technology Audit Practice

With companies migrating more and more into the digital realm, and people conducting more of their business and personal lives online, data security threats have increased exponentially. User-friendly technologies such as the mobile web and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly and probably open the door to identity theft, loss of proprietary information, reputational damage, and regulatory involvement. On this playing field, companies must deploy an ever-more robust defense.

Despite all the attention around data security, the risk of breaches is only likely to get worse, perhaps much worse. Why? Firstly, companies today maintain far greater amounts of personal data on customers and employees than ever before. Secondly, there is the proliferation of technology. Todayís criminals pursue smaller businesses as the larger organizations improve their defenses. Every business has a bank account, a customer database, a product design, or some other asset of value. While data thieves have become more inventive, corporate policies, procedures, tools, training, and compliance efforts havenít kept up.
