Washington, DC (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011
eTERA Consulting, a professional services firm specializing in providing data management solutions to Fortune 500 companies and the AmLaw 100, today announced its Intell1gent One (sm) Information Risk Management consulting practice comprising of cross-disciplinary experts with a proven track record in helping clients to identify and mitigate the risks inherent in today’s increasingly interconnected business environments. Such business risks continually arise out of government oversight, competitor activities, data breaches, international business transactions and unforeseen events.
“Every organization is challenged with the need to audit and mitigate risk in order to prevent regulatory fines, frivolous lawsuits, investigations, loss of information, court sanctions and brand damage,” said company president Scott Holec. “The costs associated with not having an effective program to manage risks are just too great. An effective information risk management program can provide organizations with a number of business improvements including improved data quality and ease of access, process efficiency, security and organizational agility. Some of the major management disciplines supported by our team include records and storage management, litigation hold, electronic discovery and regulatory compliance.”
“eTERA’s approach is based on the fact that business challenges should not have to wait 12-18 months to be resolved, and organizations need to see ROI from projects and capital investments within six months of purchase,” said Todd Haley, eTERA’s Vice President of E-Discovery. “Our experts are skilled at facilitating communication between organizational silos to foster a cross-functional integration of information risk management stakeholders into a positive, successful and sustainable team environment. In addition, our team helps organizations with developing strategies, policies and processes that can actually be implemented and enforced. Finally, we understand the importance of partnering with IT organizations to maximize ROI from existing, scheduled or future information management technology investments.”
