Protecting your confidential information isn’t just good business, it’s the law!

Most businesses that work with private and confidential information are heavily regulated and governed. And laws designed to protect identities, financial data, and personal privacy come with strict rules – and strong fines for violating them. We can help you stay compliant.

In addition to your industry regulations governing information privacy, here are a few of the key information security laws that also apply.

Gramm-Leach Bliley Act

Protects the privacy of consumer information held by any business that provides financial products or services. It also ensures privacy protections against the sale of any private financial information. Violators can be fined up to $1,000,000.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act

Is an act set up for publicly traded companies to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate financial disclosures. The act also requires secure document retention and destruction – to better protect against corporate and accounting fraud.
