With regulation tightening due to increasing network and privacy security threats, many companies are feeling the pinch.
Today, most regulatory agencies either recommend or require an independent, objective assessment of an organization’s compliance with Federal and State regulations and industry standards. Regulators also require documented evidence that such an assessment has been performed, including conclusions drawn from the assessment process:
- Do your policies and procedures comply with applicable rules, regulations and standards?
- Are the policies and procedures documented, maintained and readily accessible?
- Are they effective?
- What deficiencies exist?
- How are you remediating the deficiencies?
Using your compliance requirements as a baseline, Emerald can combine policy review, technical testing and gap analysis to evaluate your current compliance posture. Emerald will then document the entire review process, identify areas that need improvement, and develop a remediation plan. The next time you get a visit from regulators, external examiners or internal auditors, you’ll be able to hand them an itemized list of known compliance deficiencies along with a detailed remediation plan that is already in process.
Emerald’s experienced staff has conducted Compliance Reviews for HIPAA, C2 government contracts, State of Georgia, SOX, GLBA and many, many other regulations, rules and standards.
