FireEye said Monday the alliance will offer resources from a multi-pronged approach to cybersecurity risk and assessment and due diligence that merges legal counsel, technical assessments and managed services to aid compliance with internal, external and regulatory standards.
The consortium also plans to develop risk management guidance in an effort to help organizations meet new cyber regulations.
“Cyberthreats and the regulations created to counter have grown incredibly complex,” said Brian Finch, Pillsbury partner and co-chairman of Pillsbury’s privacy, data and cybersecurity practice.
“With that in mind, it is essential to bring multiple perspectives and skill sets together in order to attack the problem,” Finch added.
Specifically, Thomson Reuters’ legal managed services team will offer support for contracts and agreements with third-party suppliers while Pillsbury will help customers navigate the myriad regulations, standards and guidelines as well as provide legal counsel on compliance and risk management.
FireEye said it will conduct technical risk assessments, testing and response readiness efforts to help clients match defense strategies to specific threats.
