Kao USA, Inc. Selects Securance Consulting

Kao USA, Inc. (Kao) has selected Securance, an IT Risk Management consulting firm, to assist in its IT security initiatives.

Kao, and other consumer companies, are committed to providing innovative products and programs that reflect the very best operating technology, materials, and product design. These consumer companies are extremely vulnerable to cyber attacks and hackers. They are likely targets for hackers seeking to log commercially sensitive information, unlock doors within networks, steal confidential documents and data, and steal corporate secrets for monetary gain.

With the exponential growth of technologies, IT security has become a critical component in every organization’s risk management strategy. Many companies lack an understanding of where their systems are vulnerable and of how to adequately protect their systems. “Too many companies underestimate the risks posed to their networks and data by both external and internal threats,” said Paul Ashe, President of Securance Consulting and a Sr. IT Risk Management Consultant.

Securance Consulting helps organizations manage the risks associated with technology, including network security, web‐ app security, virtual technology security, wireless security, general computer controls, software compliance, wireless deployments, and business continuity.

In every industry, technology is pervasive. Experienced consultants, like those at Securance, can help companies identify the technology risk and the appropriate remediations, at a significant cost‐benefit to the organization.
