Data Security, Privacy and Compliance

As you probably already know, (if you got to this page), technology, data, and the explosion of the capabilities, and the desired immediate uses of it (by business and government) are far outpacing many companies abilities to handle and manage it properly; and, federal and state regulation, coupled with private regulations and contractual obligations are giving rise to vast and potentially massive unmitigated liabilities for companies that do not handle their technolgy and data with reasonable care, e.g., Sony.


Companies and their executives must utilize the best minds and best experience when they are seeking compliance, accreditations, and evaluations for their compliance programs for things such as PCI-DSS, SOX, FISMA, SSAE16, HIPAA, HITECH, Breach Responses, Risk Assessments, Privacy Assessments, System Test & Evaluations etc...


Mr. Carlson has the formal business and legal education, the technical training required and the experience (15 years) to help your company at whatever stage it is in related to data security, privacy and compliance.
