Damian A. Walters, CISA (License #13106938)
Over 30 Years Of Experience In The Area Of IT
Our primary focus is the design and administration of Information Systems & Technology (IT) Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Audits & Assessments - comprehensive, multi-level, risk-focused audit and assessment programs with the primary goal of ensuring the overall safety and soundness of an organization’s IT infrastructure.
The audits and assessments evaluate the degree to which executives, management, staff, and vendors identify, measure, monitor, and control the existing and potential IST risks in their operations; ensure the security of non-public personal information / protected health information (NPI / PHI); and provide notification following a breach of unsecured NPI / PHI.
We have conducted hundreds of IT audits and assessments for banks and credit unions, and the businesses that support them; financial organizations, healthcare organizations, collections agencies, restaurants, IT service providers, etc., throughout the Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio tri-state area. Striving always to:
be On Time
And always providing the best IT audit and assessment services, at the best possible price.
“First National Bank of Michigan (FNBM) is a fast growing, successful community bank in West and Southwest Michigan. With success, came challenges; especially in the fast-moving, ever-changing areas of information security and regulatory compliance.
Damian Walters & Associates (DWA) was hired by FNBM initially as a consulting agency then to the Bank’s Information Security Officer (ISO) support. In conjunction with the Bank’s IT managed service provider and the good work of Damian Walters & Associates, FNBM elevated our Information Security to the next level.”

“To remain Michigan’s leader in providing specialized debt collection recovery services, we needed to prove both our ability and desire to secure our clients information. We chose Damian Walters to conduct our annual GLBA, HIPAA, and PCI audits and IT assessments. We are impressed with his depth of knowledge and quality of service.”

"Although we’re not in the healthcare business, our clients are. We are required to regularly conduct independent IT audits appropriate for HIPAA business associates. DWA more than satisfies that requirement with their IT / HIPAA Audit & Assessment and SOC2 audits. We are extremely pleased with their work, and so are our clients."
