Believe it or not when it comes to cyber threats and data security, all businesses have some type of Compliance to adhere to, it’s not always a government regulation, or is it? There are many regulatory compliance’s like GLBA, FISMA, HIPAA, PCI, FFIEC and many more, but these types of regulating bodies aren’t the only ones. Also 48 out of the 50 states in the US have a personal identifiable information (PII) laws, which carry hefty penalties for data breaches that are not reported properly. If you don’t report a breach in a specific time frame you could face fines based on local state laws.
“Gartner predicts that by 2020, 50% of all US businesses will adopt a security Framework”
This says a lot about the path we are heading down in the US. The EU (European Union) will release the GDRP (General Data Protection Regulation) , a joint regulatory compliance that will become enforceable by 25th of May 2018. The GDPR aims primarily to give control of personal data back to citizens and residents of the EU regardless of where they live. That means if you have clients that are part of the EU, your organization must abide by their regulations. These are the types of regulations we see heading to the US.
“Compliance is a continuous process, it is not a set-it-and-forget-it product. Organizations are always in a flux of being in and out of compliance and the only way to stay ahead of it is to continuously Assess, Remediate, and Report”
Sentree Systems, Corp. provides a powerful Security risk management portal that assesses your entire business and provides a transparent window into high value assets and high risk security gaps. This allows you stay organized and create a business and technology roadmap that will improve your security posture and allow you to keep up with the constant changes year after year.
Keeping Up With Compliance – Staying on top of all of the rules and regulations of compliance and adapting them to your company can be a daunting task. Most regulatory compliance standards require an internal self-assessment in order to become compliant. Many companies find this to be difficult to manage and end up getting audited and in deep trouble. This is especially true for small businesses, without the right resources and help they can find themselves paying heavy fines, and no one wants that.
Security Compliance Service – We offer a comprehensive Compliance Service, which provides a portal that takes you through a simple step by step compliance and best practices process. The portal prompts you through a series of questions to analyze the current state of your network. If required policies are missing, our system will auto-create them as you work through the easy to use wizard assisted platform.
Proof on compliance – Once an Assessment has been completed, a Work Plan (WP) is generated which reveals the risks and gaps. The WP is your step-by-step guide to help your organization to become compliant. It will also reveal if you need more than one compliance framework. For instance if you are a medical practice you will defiantly need HIPAA, but if you accept credit cards you will also need PCI-DSS to be compliant with both.
Complex Compliance Frameworks – Managing Compliance frameworks can be very challenging and very costly to implement. In addition, it is time consuming to develop training programs to keep up with all of the regulatory compliance changes. Some companies are large enough to have dedicated compliance teams, but for small businesses that is impossible. This is where our Security Compliance Service is invaluable and will provide you with a complete functioning and structured compliance management solution.
