Inside the Industry: SVA Consulting

Inside the Industry: IT Security, Sponsored Content

Mark Schafer, Chief Information Security Officer

We live in a world where cybersecurity breaches are no longer science fiction. Whether you have heard horror stories from a friend, read about them in your favorite magazine, or heard about them on the news, most people are familiar with security breaches. Regulators try to help by passing laws or regulations to help prepare organizations for the threat (HIPAA, PCI, NIST CSF, etc.), but each regulation brings more compliance requirements. Now a company is required to do both security and compliance.

SVA Consulting thinks of regulatory requirements as the starting line for security. We take the requirements of the business and mature them into a full cybersecurity program.

Our professional staff is experienced in designing a security program that meets the requirements of your industry, whether it’s HIPAA, PCI, NIST or AICPA (SOC2). We create metrics and reports to show progress and then measure the remaining risk to the organization.

SVA Consulting regularly works with executives to plan a cybersecurity strategy, and then consults within the organization on how to implement the security vision. We work with your board of directors to answer the tough questions boards are asking, and to provide appropriate board-level updates.

When the next breach occurs, make sure you know your risks and your gaps. You can learn more at or contact Mark directly at
