Audits And Compliance
Regulations and standards exist for good reasons.
Businesses must be able to show specific documentation, policies, procedures, and defined processes. We’re here to help you make sense of it all.
If your business deals with patient information, you have a responsibility to protect that data. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal standard that requires you to have both technical and physical safeguards in place to ensure that sensitive patient data doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. HIPAA regulates data access, integrity, authentication, and controls to make sure that your organization has the proper safeguards in place to protect this information.
Financial services organizations are particular targets of cybercriminals, and the State of Missouri makes sure that these kinds of businesses have the right policies and procedures in place to keep financial records safe. These same needs apply to our clients in Illinois as well.
If you have gone through an audit, you may be faced with a long list of findings. Independent audits can turn up a number of issues that need to be addressed before you are totally compliant. Brightsource can take this list and develop a network security plan that not only satisfies current requirements but mitigates future security risks as well. Industry requirements tend to be reactionary in nature, and simply conforming to the current standard doesn’t mean your organization can be considered “safe.”
