Compliance & Assessments

Nearly three out of four companies in the U.S. have experienced some type of breach, according to recent information security surveys. Yet, the majority of breaches that occur in businesses could be prevented through improved corporate governance and better internal controls. Our team brings a track record of experience in information technology controls, risk management and cyber-related projects, giving us a unique understanding of the avenues threat actors will pursue to obtain data and information. Two thirds of all breaches are accidental and could be prevented with solid controls and constant education. Because we know what to look for, we’ve built a reputation for helping our clients enhance their information technology control structure.

Warren Averett offers a full spectrum of information technology, internal control, compliance and consulting services. We utilize industry-leading frameworks (such as COBIT and NIST) to efficiently evaluate your company’s control environment and technology and security controls and add value and improved security to your organization. Warren Averett provides a variety of Risk & Compliance solutions to keep your data safe through risk assessments, IT control examinations and more. We can help your company adopt a proactive approach to compliance, minimize the risk of a security breach and ensure that you’re complying with industry requirements, such as PCI, HIPAA, FAR and DFARS.


Depending on your business, you may be required to meet multiple compliance requirements. If not met, penalties from these compliance requirements can put a significant dent in a company’s earnings, but they are nothing compared to the damage that a data security breach can do to your business and its reputation. Would you do business with a company who had a data breach?

Data breaches can be very damaging, both to your bottomline and to your reputation. The best way to stop a breach is to be proactive and prevent it before it happens. We have a variety of services we can provide where we can test your system and see how it would hold up in the event of a cyber attack. If we find any weaknesses we can fix them before the cyber bullies find them.

Warren Averett typically begins with a vulnerability assessment of your internal and external network environment, and identifies holes and vulnerabilities in your systems. If we discover vulnerabilities, then we can conduct a penetration test. Penetration testing identifies exploitable vulnerabilities in your data security which can be compromised by hackers. Tests are run on software and devices within your system to inspect web applications and databases, and to search for malicious intrusions, such as adware and spyware. Tests are also performed on various data security measures, including firewalls, anti-virus tools, patches, internal controls, remote access, and more. If your company requires a PCI scan, we can help you facilitate the scan and make any adjustments required.
