The platitude that 'no good deed goes unpunished' holds true in the information security context: Traditional cybersecurity firms can often do more harm to an organization than good by documenting deficiencies without contemplating future risk. This is especially true for organizations facing regulatory scrutiny or potential litigation.
Progressive organizations require information security professionals who have a richer understanding of the implications of their actions — professionals who can not only secure a system or network in the short term, but who can also mitigate long-term risk.
At Black Chambers, we believe information security performed properly requires a multi-disciplinary approach, which is why our services combine the full arsenal of traditional information security practices with the forward-looking legal acumen of our affiliate law firm, Blackstone Law Group.
By structuring our services with and through the Blackstone Law Group, there are several layers of added value for our clients:
- Enhanced privacy and risk mitigation via legal professional privilege, reducing legal and regulatory exposure
- Trust and candor increased between all parties
- Efficiencies and cost reduction
Black Chambers is the only information security firm where lawyers and information security professionals work — by design — hand-in-hand on a daily basis, with both sets of professionals having deep knowledge and history with the information security community.
