PII Compliance Services with The Scarlett Group

Organization's of all sizes and industries must comply with relevant legislation surrounding the protection and proper management of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). PII is defined as data that can be used to identify specific individuals. Attackers and cybercriminals often target PII as the primary objective of their breaches, as this information is worth great financial and espionage value. The Scarlett Group offers complete managed PII protection and compliance services, enabling your organization to stop stressing over PII compliance.

PII and The Importance of Proper Compliance

Cybercriminals are fully aware of the value associated with PII that companies collect. Whether it be employee data, customer preferences, or even registration aliases - never underestimate the value of the information on your systems. Attackers will go to great lengths to compromise an organization with the goal of exfiltrating PII to use in future criminal activities. This PII can be sold, repurposed for Identify Theft, used for phishing attacks, and even ransomed. Don't be caught in the nightly news headlines as another victim of a costly PII breach. Work with our team to close the gaps in your network and protect the PII within your systems.
