Corporate Governance in the Era of the NSA

Many of us knew before the Edward Snowden revelations that the government's reach is long, but when it was made clear just how much they truly have access to, it's fair to say that there were chills all around.

Russian Roulette with Security Breaches

Many organizations aren't taking data security seriously, despite the fact that hackers continue to breach relatively secure systems at large corporations, subjecting those companies to reputational harm and loss of consumer trust.

More Than Due Diligence: Never-Ending Due Diligence

Conducting due diligence on third parties isn't about diving deep into every possible avenue for wrongdoing.

Commerce is forever becoming more global in nature, and as a result, maintaining compliance with the federal government's regulations is becoming increasingly challenging.
