We worry about your compliance so you focus on growing your business

In today’s business world, Compliance is a priority. Compliance typically refers to a company’s ability to protect themselves and their customers from legal obligations, often involving the health, safety, and welfare of others. With the way technology continues to be leveraged and used in business, businesses face new challenges related to IT compliance. Technology, especially IT Compliance, is a major factor in today’s regulatory concerns. Not following regulatory compliance and security standards can result in data breaches. Penalties can be steep and cause productivity and budgetary setbacks.

There are a variety of compliance requirements, each geared towards different objectives. Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA and PCI-DSS compliance regulations are just a few of the compliance standards. Each has its own set of requirements and goals. Since organizations are increasing their collection of business data, whether for marketing, sales, or other uses, the data presents a risk for businesses that do not follow or implement compliance guidelines.

Finally, the NIST 800-171 standard allows for “Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal System and Organizations”.
