It depends.

Any cyber risk posture really does depend on your environment and business. The way to minimize the fog of cyber security complexity is to quantify it for your company, ideally based on risk value. We all know that cyber risk is in the “eyes of the beholder” (CISO versus C-Suite versus Board) and finding a common vernacular therein – like risk.

Short answer; use a Risk Based Security Strategy (RBSS). One that focuses on cyber hygiene, access management, encryption and monitoring (along with an effective third party/vendor risk management effort). Risk is a combination of threat, vulnerability, likelihood and impact/consequences along with asset values. Next, we provide the rationale and ‘cyber story’ that goes with that RBSS assertion.

Cyber security is a wide capability area with complex technical and business interactions, […]

Two members of alliantgroup’s executive management team cover the intent of the credit, its value to C-level executives and its importance in ensuring future economic progress

After years of firsthand experience serving clients and building CPA and industry partnerships across the country, I can state, without a doubt, that the Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit is the single most important incentive for U.S. businesses. This has been true since the credit’s inception—and considering its evolution over the last three decades and the ever-expanding influence of technology, the R&D Tax Credit has become crucial in ensuring a thriving and competitive economy.

Ever since my colleagues Dhaval Jadav and Shane Frank founded alliantgroup back in 2002 (and after I joined the firm in 2005), the three of us have witnessed […]

After almost a year without a confirmed IRS commissioner, on October 1 Charles Rettig took office as the nation’s 49th commissioner of Internal Revenue. The post dates to the Civil War and the agency has had its ups and downs over the decades. Recent years have been tough. Mr. Rettig finds himself with both challenges and opportunities; a good start will be critical. Having held the job as the 46th commissioner, here are a few observations.

The sine qua non of the new commissioner’s tenure will be restoration of a constructive relationship with the Congress. Even in the best of times the service is never popular. Nobody heads back home to campaign for reelection with the pitch, “Vote for me. I got more money for the IRS.” Still, the […]

Looking at the numbers, it is safe to say there have been major strides made in the area of energy efficiency in recent years. According to the United States Green Building Council, the green building sector is set to outpace overall construction growth and is anticipated to contribute 1.1 million jobs and $75.6 billion in wages to the U.S. by the end of the year.

In addition to green construction’s direct benefits to the economy, the U.S. Green Building Council further notes its direct benefits to the tenants of those structures, with energy-efficient buildings lowering the overall daily costs of building operations year-over-year. LEED buildings report almost 20-percent-lower maintenance costs than typical commercial buildings, and green building retrofit projects typically decrease operation costs by almost 10 percent in […]
