GDPR, HIPAA, FERPA. The list of compliance standards continues to grow. If your business takes credit or debit cards as a form of payment, PCI standards apply. If you have European customers, GDPR privacy laws must be met. Keeping track of overlapping requirements can be overwhelming. Failing to comply with applicable standards can result in fines and penalties, especially if they contribute to a security breach.
Braden Business Systems’ team of experts helps companies stay on top of their compliance requirements, so they can focus on growing their businesses. Whether it is meeting data storage standards or annual retesting, our staff will ensure you are in compliance.
Benefits of Braden’s Compliance Management Services
Managing compliance is more than reading a standard. It’s understanding the intent behind the requirement that ensures compliance. For example, implementing least-privilege access shouldn’t be a one-and-done job. Failing to maintain it after receiving compliance could result in penalties if a compromise happens.
Systems change as businesses grow. Different standards apply as companies move into new markets. Braden helps clients stay in compliance as they grow and expand. Our team understands the reasoning behind the security standards, so your organization is always in compliance.
Braden’s Compliance Management Services
Our compliance management capabilities include the following standards.
There’s a reason cybercriminals target healthcare. Not only do healthcare providers have medical histories, but they also have insurance data, payment information, social security numbers, and more. With a single compromise, hackers gain access to data that lets them access bank accounts, apply for loans, and steal identities.
Braden knows how a security lapse can damage reputations and break patient trust. If you operate in the healthcare sector, let our team help protect your data and stay in compliance.
Any organization wanting to do business with the U.S. Department of Defense must be in compliance with the DOD’s CMMC standards. CMMC operates as a maturity model, requiring companies to show continuous improvement in meeting CMMC standards. It’s not enough to meet standards. The government expects businesses to develop a security culture.
Braden has the expertise to help clients meet initial compliance requirements and to develop a cyber strategy to demonstrate security maturity.
If your business accepts credit or debit card payments, you must comply with the Payment Card Industry’s (PCI) standards. PCI requires annual recertification of cyber defenses and has stringent requirements for storing and transmitting payment information.
Failure to comply carries stiff penalties, especially if a lapse precipitated a compromise. Our team ensures that annual testing is performed and data protection standards are met.
HIPAA is a law that sets standards for safeguarding health information. HITRUST CSF is a framework that demonstrates HIPAA compliance. HITRUST follows a maturity model that determines standards based on business size and scope. Like CMMC, HITRUST is designed to help organizations of all sizes comply with HIPAA regulations.
Braden understands maturity model certifications. We help clients determine to what degree a standard applies given their business size. We also work with clients to develop a cyber strategy to ensure security maturity.
NIST is a cybersecurity framework issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce as a tool for maintaining a strong security posture. It is a voluntary framework, although many industries have adopted it as a compliance standard. Most federal agencies adhere to the NIST CSF except for the U.S. Department of Defense.
NIST, like many security standards, can be difficult to decipher what does and doesn’t apply to a given business. Braden’s team of experts knows how to interpret the framework to ensure your business complies with all applicable standards.
ISO 27001 is an international standard for managing the security of digital assets. It provides a framework for creating an information security management system for protecting the confidentiality and integrity of information. It is the only internationally recognized standard for data security.
ISO 27001 can operate in conjunction with other standards such as NIST to create a strong security environment. Braden’s compliance experts can help clients merge requirements to minimize the regulatory burden without compromising security.
