Most IT firms offer a checklist approach for assessing risk.  With experienced CIO, CTO, and CISO professionals, PYA’s IT Risk Management team goes beyond checklists to analyze critical system and technology controls.  If your risk management program does not include a comprehensive assessment, consider PYA’s IT Services to evaluate the security of your valuable data.



Sometimes, merely identifying risk is not enough.  Issues often are systemic and masked by years of temporary fixes. Mitigation can also require specific expertise.  Whatever the case, PYA’s experienced audit team is prepared to perform custom audit engagements.  Our risk-based audit approach provides trusted evidence and detailed action plans.
