IT Regulatory Compliance Programs

SystemExperts’ security compliance programs follow a risk-based approach. For most organizations, the first challenge is identifying the assets considered important to the organization. This may include sensitive customer data, but also includes sensitive and critical data associated with intellectual property, business operations, strategic corporate initiatives, financial information, IT infrastructure information, and protecting employee data. SystemExperts then reviews applicable regulations and security frameworks, such as but not limited to Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), State Data Breach Laws, ISO 27001/2, or even Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

Organizations that are just starting out may only need a level of comfort that the organization is operationally “doing the right thing” and SystemExperts’ security compliance methodology can assist in that effort too.

Our security compliance methodology consists of the following steps:

  • Education – Providing an in depth immersion-style interpretation of the security requirements associated with the regulations in the context of the organization’s unique business environment and risks
  • Compliance Preparation – Providing access to all SystemExperts’ consultants for advice and assistance in closing compliance gaps
  • Baseline Assessment – Performing a formal baseline compliance assessment against the relevant regulatory requirements, with practical recommendation to close any identify gaps
  • Remediation Updates – Allowing the organization a defined window of time to address compliance gaps and optional recommendations for improving the compliance posture, resulting in an updated assessment report
  • Communication – Providing a Statement of Compliance that organizations can use with their clients to demonstrate compliance with the relevant regulation
  • Update Assessments – Performing update assessments to annually address the impact of changes to the organization, changes to regulations/standards, and changes in the threat landscape
