Cybersecurity threats are evolving daily. From social engineering to detailed spear phishing emails, hackers are becoming more sophisticated. As those threats have increased, so too have governmental requirements for business owners. HIPAA and cardholder data compliance, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the requirement of a Written Information Security Program (WISP) in certain states are only a few of the potential regulations facing your business.

Whittlesey’s technology team works with small- to medium-sized businesses and nonprofits to conduct network security reviews, testing and risk assessments, create security policies, train employees, assure compliance, and protect assets. And in the case of an incident, we’re here to investigate and remediate systems, comply with the proper authorities, and facilitate the road to recovery.

Our dedicated cybersecurity team is staffed by Certified Information Systems Auditors, Cyber Forensic Analysts and Information Systems Risk Consultants who specialize in helping businesses identify, prevent, detect, remediate, and recover from cybersecurity incidents. Our clients think of us as an extension of their leadership team, providing trusted technology advice when it’s most needed.

Protecting your business from cyber threats and complying with regulations doesn’t need to be overwhelming. Whittlesey’s cybersecurity and assurance services offer comprehensive coverage to protect your critical data.
