CYBER SECURITY COMPLIANCE
POWERNET's cyber consulting compliance services help companies put an end to regulatory confusion, respond to business threats, pinpoint operational inefficiencies, and focus on the core of their business. If high-profile breaches have taught us anything, it’s not a matter of if, but when an overlooked vulnerability can spin into a full-blown crisis. We help companies conduct complete security assessments that identify vulnerabilities, test penetration, and assess risks that could one day bring your business operations to a halt.
Cyber threats are increasing, compliance mandates are getting more complicated, and a well-designed cyber risk management program is your best line of defense. POWERNET helps organizations comply with global business, financial, government, industry and healthcare mandates while helping build the IT infrastructure and security systems that will protect their business from security breaches and data theft. The company is a leading provider of IT advisory services for security in government, start-ups, retail, payments, healthcare, financial services, higher education, hospitality, government and utilities. Compliance is perhaps the most important activity done by a business. If a business is found to be non-compliant, then it could face severe penalties and in a worst case scenario, it could even cease to exist.
Compliance mandates are often the result of a compromise between cost, ease of use and security. When systems simply can’t meet existing security mandates, it is advised in developing new mandates from the ground up. NIST offers a process for security assessment that flows from an understanding of adversarial capabilities, types and sensitivities of data or controls to be protected, and available budget. Following this process, you can identify potential security risks specific to the system and then develop practices to secure the system against those risks becoming vulnerabilities.
Compliance can be either regulatory in nature, or could involve internal compliance rules within firms. Regulatory compliance is usually the most extensive requirement that companies face. All industries have basic regulations that they need to abide by. Some industries are much heavier regulated than others. The most regulated industries are financial, healthcare and education. These industries have multiple laws and regulations that they need to comply with and often report to government entities on the status of their compliance.
Compliance is simple. Now, that’s a novel idea. Compliance requirements are typically defined, and you just need to follow the rules. Compliance requirements are often quite comprehensive, and they can be overwhelming. But they don’t need to be – they can actually be quite simple if you have the right partner working with you to achieve and maintain your compliance requirements. POWERNET professionals use a combination of IT experience, expertise and intelligence to independently audit and evaluate your entire IT infrastructure to determine what your actual risks are, help you understand how to protect your business assets, and what resources you need to quickly identify and respond to security threats. POWERNET works directly with your internal teams to implement advanced vulnerability and penetration testing to assess enterprise security risk.
Compliance Requirements & Certifications
The world of IT compliance can be confusing, especially for those without technical expertise. POWERNET works directly with your team to help your company maintain the complete compliance that your business depends on.
