3. Cyber Resilience

In today’s world, accessing IT systems, data and process are readily accepted as a daily necessity. According to the FBI, with over 900 cyber incidents occurring daily, experiencing a cyber incident is a “when” scenario rather than an “if” scenario. 

Guidehouse’s Cyber Resilience service focuses on a multifaceted approach that considers people, processes, and technology. Through a mission-focused lens, Guidehouse provides a pragmatic approach to reducing the impact of cyber-related risks to an organization.  

The service is designed to help organizations minimize the impact of disruptive cyber incidents and attacks, identify relationships between organizational objectives, mission-essential functions, operational activities, and dependent technology assets. Whether a client is interested in identifying its mission-essential or supporting functions and technologies, or understanding its greatest risks, Guidehouse’s assessments and strategy development services enable organizations to better protect their critical operations and more quickly recover from cyberattacks.

4. Identity and Access Management

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is the cornerstone of cybersecurity. It not only builds the underlying foundation of zero trust, but also is critical for security in both traditional networks and cloud-based architectures through the merger of technology, people, and processes. The goal of IAM is to provide the right people, the right access, to the right resources, for the right reasons. Guidehouse takes an identity-centric approach when providing organizations with a tailored IAM solution. Our services range from defining a clear vision and strategy, to architecting the technical solution that best meets your IAM road map, to fully deploying and operating IAM systems or programs.

6. Data Protection and Privacy

Guidehouse understands the crucial role that data plays in today’s business environment. Business data encompasses a wealth of information that can be used to better win, serve, and retain customers. Much of that information is sensitive in nature — encompassing both business proprietary, confidential and personally identifiable information, including consumer preferences and behaviors. The disciplines of data security and privacy are interdependent, not interchangeable. A piece of data might be well-secured, even though the way you use it violates privacy requirements. Robust data protection and privacy programs are needed to comply with the many legal and regulatory privacy requirements worldwide and successfully address consumer data security and privacy concerns. 
 
Guidehouse takes a data-centric approach when providing organizations with tailored Data Protection and Privacy solutions and services. We combine industry-specific and privacy regulatory expertise with data protection and cybersecurity knowledge to help clients and industry partners assess, build, enhance, and maintain their data protection and privacy programs.
