Compliance Management to help you seamlessly maintain and demonstrate your IT regulatory compliance

NIST CSF

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a framework called the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) for streamlining cybersecurity for private-sector businesses. NIST CSF is a set of voluntary standards, recommendations, and best practices that are designed to help organizations prevent, identify, detect, respond to, and recover from cyber-attacks.

Concerns Associated with NIST Compliance
    • Most businesses do not possess the in-house expertise of safely assessing NIST requirements.
    • Businesses need to understand their unique cybersecurity risks and vulnerabilities to properly design, implement, and manage their security programs and best practices.

Cyber Insurance

Cyber Insurance is a type of insurance product that is designed to protect businesses against the potential damages associated with cybercrimes such as ransomware and malware attacks. It is a customizable solution for businesses to mitigate specific risks associated with cybersecurity breaches and prevent unauthorized access to their sensitive data and networks.


Concerns Associated with Cyber Insurance Compliance

  • Cyber Insurance coverage can be unclear and confusing. It’s hard to understand what is covered and what is not – want to be certain you are picking the right coverage.
  • The policies are complex and possess certain constraints and limitations that can be difficult for businesses to interpret. It is vital that you have adhered to and fulfilled all policy requirements to ensure that your claims are denied.

GDPR 

GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is essentially a regulatory standard according to which businesses are obligated to protect the privacy and personal data of European Union (EU) citizens for all transactions that are carried out within the EU member states. GDPR is intended to unify and reinforce data protection for all individuals that reside within the EU and control the export of personal data outside the EU.

Concerns Associated with GDPR Compliance

  • Businesses need to be prepared to adapt, test, maintain, and demonstrate compliance with the evolving GDPR requirements.
  • Non-compliant businesses are liable to pay hefty penalties and can also be temporarily or definitively banned.
  • Ambiguous terms and lack of clarity render GDPR compliance difficult to handle without professional assistance.

HIPAA  (Coming Soon)

HIPAA or Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a compliance standard that is designed for the protection of sensitive patient data. Any organization that deals with protected health information (PHI) is obligated to maintain and follow the process, network, and physical security measures in order to be HIPAA complaint.

Concerns Associated with HIPAA Compliance
    • HIPAA violations attract hefty penalties.
    • Adequate training for handling PHI and dealing with malicious security attacks is critical.
    • It is imperative to have a Security Incident Response Plan (SIRP) in place to deal with a security event.
    • Professional assistance is required to handle the complexity of audits and maintain the right documentation.
