BUFFALO, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 29, 2023 / Dansa D'Arata Soucia LLP (DDS), a distinguished CPA firm based in Buffalo, New York, is taking the lead in advocating for robust internal controls as a cornerstone of data security. Partners Daniel Garigen and Eric A. Soucia offer their expert insights on the critical role of comprehensive security measures within organizations.
Daniel Garigen, Partner at Dansa D'Arata Soucia LLP, underscores the need for proactive data security measures. To quote him,
In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, organizations face an array of cyber threats. A robust internal control framework serves as a vital defense, allowing for the early detection and mitigation of risks. This includes implementing access controls, conducting regular system checks, and performing thorough risk assessments.
On his part, Eric A. Soucia, Partner and Co-Founder of Dansa D'Arata Soucia LLP, emphasizes the legal and regulatory consequences of data breaches. He notes that,
Data breaches can result in significant legal repercussions, including hefty fines, reputational damage, and potential litigation. A strong internal control environment not only strengthens an organization's security posture but also ensures compliance with data protection laws. This is especially critical in today's landscape, given the proliferation of privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA.
Garigen further stresses the importance of a holistic approach to data security, encompassing both technological solutions and human factors. He stated that, while investing in state-of-the-art cybersecurity tools is essential, educating employees and fostering a security-conscious culture are equally vital. Human error, he said, remains a significant factor in many security incidents, so providing ongoing training and awareness programs is paramount.
Soucia adds that,
Effective internal control programs demand collaboration between IT teams, legal counsel, and compliance officers. This multidisciplinary approach guarantees that all aspects of data security are addressed comprehensively, from technical safeguards to legal compliance and risk management.
Dansa D'Arata Soucia LLP urges organizations of all sizes and industries to prioritize the establishment of robust internal controls as a fundamental component of their cybersecurity strategy. By doing so, businesses can bolster their resilience to cyber threats, safeguard sensitive information, and meet their legal obligations.
