IT Audit and Advisory

The Team

Nathan Hutchings, CASP

Director of Information Systems

Driven by financial gain and corporate espionage, cyberattacks are a growing threat and will continue to upend the digital landscape with sophisticated methods. According to the FBI's Internet Crime Report for 2021, "the cost of cybercrimes reached $4.2 billion in 2020 and grew to more than $6.9 billion in 2021." Many of the cyberattacks hit small- to medium-sized businesses and the majority of these businesses closed their doors within six months of a breach. Cybercriminals have created new phishing, malware, ransomware, and cryptojacking attack strategies, and the various types of cybercriminals continue to add new levels of complexity to the growing remote work landscape. In the current environment it is crucial that all businesses ensure they have taken every precaution against cyber threats.

"Nate provided us with an audit of our IT system designed to identify network risks and exposures. In addition to showing me that we had much to improve upon, Nate was able to explain the results in clear, non-IT speak, a skill in itself.  Nate’s IT skills are evident; his ability to translate a technical subject into layperson terms and sense of humor are a definite plus!"  -IT Audit client
