desconcierto


Explanation:
To "avergonzar" is to embarrass in the sense of "shame" - that's not what your client is saying. "Desconcertar" is more accurate in this particular usage.

("No causar perjuicio o desconcierto al cliente"

poner...en un aprieto, perjudicar, inquietar


Explanation:
I agree with C Shaw.

To make someone 'embarrassed' is not the same as to cause him/her to feel 'shame'

Embarrass a client:

Here the context seems to be that your client will be embarassed, but in the sense of being in trouble, in front of his customers for 'loss of information'

'Poner el cliente en un aprieto' is a better translation in that context.

For the rest:

Perjudicar a un cliente/

Levantar inquietude en los clientes/Inquietar a los clientes en cuanto a nuestros sistemas de seguridad y de calidad.
