If your business is in an industry that is regulated by federal law then it’s critical that you make IT assessments a part of your ongoing compliance efforts. Industries like Healthcare, Financial, and Retail, to name a few, are prime targets for would-be data assassins that seek to gain financially by exploiting personal information stored on your network. In some cases, IT assessments are a hard requirement for proving your commitment to comply with federal law. HIPAA and PCI-DSS are excellent examples of laws and standards that mandate ongoing compliance efforts. An inability to show proof of compliance efforts could result in major violations and fines being assessed against your company in the event of an audit.
While there are several laws and regulations on the books the two regulations we focus on are HIPAA and PCI-DSS. Our customers that are subject to federal laws and regulations are mostly in the Healthcare, Financial, and Retail industries. However, our compliance assessment solutions work very well for other industries who may be subject to privacy and security regulations like The Sarbanes–Oxley Act (SOX) and The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA).
No matter what your industry if you are concerned about privacy and security we have a solution for you!
