Engineering firms have legal, regulatory, contractual, and business needs for protecting and keeping confidential the personally identifiable information (“PII”) of their clients, employees, and other individuals. The unauthorized access to, use of, or disclosure of such information (a “data breach”) can expose your firm to a variety of risk.

In the normal course of business, you process a large of amount of PII and sensitive business information, and your actions may lead to a compromise of the privacy, confidentiality, security or integrity of this information. Processing of PII in the U.S. is subject to federal and state regulations and your firm’s own corporate policies – blissful ignorance isn’t a pass anymore.
