$8.19 million. That’s the average cost of a data breach for U.S. companies.1

Cybersecurity peace of mind may not come free, but the costs of not being prepared can far outweigh a responsible investment in information security. That is where BPM comes in. With BPM’s IT Security Advisory practice, you get true security professionals who help you identify threats, minimize liabilities, prepare for audits and more — all at a competitive rate you can feel good about.

Specialized, Cost-Effective Security Monitoring — 24/7/365

Your Security Operations Center (SOC) is your business’s front-line defense against hackers and insider threat. It is more than just a best practice; continuous security monitoring is mandated under many industry or government regulations.

Getting a SOC up and running on your own, however, can be overwhelming. And the talent required to oversee the center can be hard to find or prohibitively expensive.

BPM has the talent and the resources you need to implement and operate a state-of-the-art SOC. Our innovative, fully-managed SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS) offerings allow you to offload a major burden from your in-house IT team. Even better, the volume and domain specificity of our business allow us to provide these services more efficiently than most in-house teams can, and we pass that efficiency along to you in the form of more savings.

Proceed Through Your Security Audits With Ease and Confidence

Audits can be expensive, but the real cost is failing them. A failed audit can mean business disruption, a loss of customer confidence and even lawsuits, depending on the industry and type of audit. That is not including the cost of conducting and preparing for another audit to reestablish compliance.

Many businesses enter government or industry mandated security audits without fully understanding the requirements of the audits, or the seriousness of them. BPM’s IT Security Advisory practice guides organizations of all sizes through the entire audit process, from the initial announcement or notification up to and through the audit itself. Your trusted security advocates and advisors, and our team helps organizations understand audit requirements, create strategies to pass the audit, and design and implement plans to fortify your information security according to relevant regulations.

We take our role as advisers seriously. We leverage our deep industry expertise to help you make informed judgments and predictions about concerning costs, vendors, level of service and other factors that non-specialists may not be familiar with, so there are no surprises along the way. Our duty is to your business, first and foremost, and we will never try to sell you anything we are not 100% convinced your organization needs.
