Our Expertise
Cybersecurity shouldn’t feel like a rollercoaster ride

Do you ever feel upside down or in the dark when it comes to cybersecurity? Even with controls in place, do you feel anxious?

We know it’s difficult to protect your clients and customers, your data, and your staff while staying aware of new threats — and new regulations. That’s why we’ve established a security methodology that addresses everything from risk assessment, prevention, and recovery to the full development of response procedures and security policies. We look at your entire cyberstructure — the people, process, and technology — to help your organization stay off the rollercoaster.

Our cybersecurity leaders are on the forefront of industry trends and regulations. They’re frequently asked to share their knowledge with national and regional publications, and they’re often invited to speak at local and national events, such as the ICBA Annual Conference and the North American International Cyber Summit.

Our diverse staff members have earned more than 10 high-level certifications, including CISA, CISM, CEH, CISSP, CRISC, CCSK, and more. We’re one of only 32 nationally approved HITRUST assessors, also accredited to provide PCI and ISO services.

We’ll handle the details so you can focus on what you do best

How fast could our certified hackers break into your records? We go beyond technology and examine your people and processes to identify proactive and creative strategies that defend against security threats.

Our cybersecurity services include:

Attack & pen
If a hacker can do it, so can we. We’ll perform technical tests to identify external and internal threats to your cloud, mobile, internet, database, and wireless technologies.
Are you prepared to comply with various privacy regulations (GLBA, HIPAA, GDPR, etc.,) as well as industry standards (such as PCI DSS, HITRUST, ISO 27001)? We’ll map your control environment against each applicable requirement and provide a concise overview with dashboards of your compliance status.
Cyber governance
Do you fully understand the NIST cybersecurity standards or the SANS Top 20 security controls? Are you confident in the integrity of your information? We’ll help you develop a risk governance framework and a cybersecurity roadmap that’s manageable and sustainable for your organization and culture.
Cyber risk assessment
We'll guide you through a cyber risk assessment methodology that identifies and addresses the specific threats your organization faces. This eye-opening exercise is critical; without it, you simply can’t know if you have the correct controls to mitigate the perceived risks.
Are your customers requiring that you’re HITRUST-certified? Do you want that competitive advantage? As one of only 32 nationally approved common security framework (CSF) assessors for HITRUST, we work with healthcare organizations and their service providers to certify their readiness and compliance.
IT audits
Auditing your IT and cyber controls isn’t simply a prudent measure; it’s required in regulated industries. We take into account various regulatory requirements, including HIPAA, GLBA, and Sarbanes-Oxley for an efficient testing approach. We also follow the guidelines of NIST, COBIT, the Center for Internet Security’s “Top 20 Controls,” and other industry standards, such as ITIL and ISO.
SOC examinations
Our services include the newly released SOC for cybersecurity. We also perform more than 50 SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 examinations annually with clients across the United States and globally. We’ll perform readiness assessments to identify control weaknesses and develop recommendations for remediation.

Client Experience
People come first

People. Process. Technology. There’s a reason people come first. Our cyber team — touching every industry — is composed of process and technology experts. But it’s our people who can offer your people the peace of mind they depend on.

For nearly 30 years, we’ve been building lasting relationships — with each other and with our clients. Our experts take the time to understand your processes and your systems. This means we do more than protect you from the threats you’re aware of. By taking a holistic view of your organization, we protect you from the threats you haven’t even considered.

This is something Raj Patel, our cybersecurity practice leader, knows firsthand. “I’m incredibly proud of how our diverse team always comes together in the pursuit of a common goal: our clients’ security. By getting to know each unique client, we’re able to deliver solutions that help clients rest at night.”

Our clients say

We began using Plante Moran’s IT security consultants on a SAS 70 project (now called SOC) shortly after we started our company. Their consultants gained our trust and we have used them on SOC projects each year since. We have expanded our relationship with Plante Moran over the years and have worked with them on various network Security, audit, & tax projects as well. Plante Moran’s teams are professional and thorough and we enjoy working with them.
