Cyber Governance and Compliance

Compliance and governance designed to help you manage and avoid risks

Organizations face the challenge of meeting client needs and protecting their information. Evolving business needs, disruptive technologies and changing compliance requirements often introduce challenges and risks to the organization. Confusing regulations, antiquated systems, acquisitions and limited resources can leave organizations exposed and provide roadblocks, keeping them from implementing a consistent, repeatable and sustainable security program.

By partnering with organizations, RSM can help develop and implement an overall strategy aligned to a defined framework, align the security program to meet business goals or help organizations comply with a required standard (PHIPA, PCI, NIST, etc.).


RSM features a variety of professionals who are incredibly well-versed in many different industries. With their experience, they can help provide an organization with direction and resources to assist in augmenting information technology staff and leaders to meet operational requirements. In addition, our team of professionals can help security leaders show a return on investment through collaboration and development of key metrics.

Who needs this

If your business is currently facing difficulties in meeting required security standards, or is failing to meet your own internally set goals, our governance and compliance service will be beneficial to you. Our knowledgeable staff will collaborate with you to determine your information security needs.

Overview of services

Viewing your organization holistically, we will assess your organization's security and privacy technical, compliance and risk management environments. Following the evaluation, your team will know where any existing holes are, how to fix them and how best to manage the metrics going forward.

After collaborating with you to understand and assess your information security needs, our professionals help you identify a governance framework to fit your needs. Some widely used governance frameworks include:

  • International Organization for Standardization (e.g., ISO 27001/27002) 
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology (e.g., NIST SP800-53)
  • Governmental standards, such as PIPEDA, PHIPA and others
  • Industry best practices from entities such as the SANS Institute, ISACA andISC2

If those listed above are not a good fit, our team helps you adapt or blend standard frameworks or custom tailors a unified controls framework to address your unique needs. Once a framework has been identified or created, RSM can help you fulfill the requirements or recommendations of that framework with our additional compliance and governance service offerings:

  • Data and system classification
  • Policy and governance
  • Operational and technical security risks
  • Impact of changing business conditions
