Audit, Compliance & Consulting

Today's information systems go beyond just enabling business, they form the critical backbone of almost all business processes. That means that unmitigated cyber security risks can have devastating effects. Having the right controls can reduce risk, but how do you know you're doing the right things? How do you know your controls are effective? Let SynerComm's team of AssureIT consultants assess, validate and align your security program to meet business objectives.

Information assurance is the practice of managing risks pertaining to data and data processing environments. Effectively managing risk requires a deep understanding of the weaknesses that leave assets vulnerable and the controls that protect them. SynerComm's AssureIT consulting engagements provide the essential vulnerability details, gap analysis and mitigation solutions to reduce risk and strengthen information assurance programs.
