SystemExperts's IT compliance programs are based on a life-cycle approach. For most organizations, the first challenge is understanding the requirements imposed by the regulation of the contract (as in the case of PCI DSS).
Our IT compliance methodology whether for HIPAA, PCI DSS, or ISO 2700X consists of the following steps:
SystemExperts uses a lifecycle approach in guiding our clients through our compliance programs.
We help our clients interpret the particular regulation or standard within the context of their unique business model and help them understand what it means to comply. We then work with the organization to identify pertinent compliance gaps and provide practical recommendations to close those gaps.
Once those gaps are closed, SystemExperts will return to perform a rigorous compliance assessment and document the company’s success in a format to be shared with relevant third parties.
The roadmap to comprehensive and cost effective security
SystemExperts's ISO 27002 Compliance Program is a structured methodology designed to help companies build comprehensive and cost effective enterprise security programs, ensuring that security resources are applied wisely, and efforts are focused on activities that will reduce real business risk.
For years, organizations have been searching for an objective benchmark to measure the security of potential business partners and to distinguish the quality of their own services. ISO 27002 is an international standard that defines an overarching security framework consisting of 135 specific controls organized around 36 control objectives. This balanced framework serves as the basis for both measuring an organization's effectiveness in addressing risk and structuring an organization's overall security program. Because ISO 27002's requirements are largely a superset of other major regulations, achieving ISO 27002 compliance positions most organizations to be well on their way to meeting the requirements of Sarbanes Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, HIPAA, and other pertinent regulations.
SystemExperts's ISO 27002 Compliance Program provides the following:
