Providing Peace of Mind

At GRF CPAs & Advisors (GRF), we are dedicated to safeguarding the integrity of our client’s information technology systems (IT) and the data they are responsible for protecting. Our service approach is systematic and is heavily focused on timely, responsive and clear communications.

Data Security Should be a Top Priority

Our GRF Cybersecurity Risk Assessment and Scorecard provides valuable information in the form of a detailed report with observations and recommendations related to vulnerabilities with respect to 19-security related categories (including fraudulent domains, patch management issues, SSL/TLS strength, IP reputation, and others). For your benefit, the results are also provided in an easy-to-understand scorecard summary which gives you a letter grade score to see where you stand against your peers.
