The Compliance Challenge

In today’s digital economy, retail and general business transactions of all types are initiated, processed and stored electronically. This increased dependency on technology presents additional challenges for retailers and business service organizations to protect confidential data and ensure availability and integrity of systems that support internal functions and privacy of customer information. The specific regulatory and best practice standards are defined by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and state privacy laws.

These standards require organizations to have an information security program that addresses the security threats related to people, processes and technology. Specifically, an information security program should include:

  • A risk management program that ensures risks are identified and prioritized through remediation
  • Information security policy and procedures
  • A vulnerability management program
  • Ongoing testing of the information security program, including:
    • Independent testing
    • Self assessment
    • Audit of security controls
  • Employee training and testing on the information security program

At the same time, we help protect the personal financial information of your customers and ensure the integrity of your data.

Our compliance solution includes a deep set of expert services:

Our security and compliance consultants offer a full range of assessment, testing and training services that will assure your organization’s compliance with all current mandates.  Services include:

  • Security Assessment: An independent test of the information security program.
  • Risk Assessment: To identify reasonably foreseeable risks that could result in service interruption or unauthorized disclosure, misuse, alteration, or destruction of confidential information.
  • IT Security Audit: An audit of the controls supporting the information security program.
  • Penetration Testing: A test of weaknesses using ethical attempts to exploit vulnerabilities.
  • Social Engineering: To test if employees are adhering to security policies.
  • Application Testing: Determines the strength of your online application security profile and identifies layer vulnerabilities.
  • Wireless Assessment: Provides a detailed look at the current risk of your wireless implementation as our security analysts attempt to compromise systems and information through ethical hacking methods.
  • Security Training: Flexible, customizable security awareness training.
  • Advanced Persistent Threat Assessment: A realistic assessment that fulfills several testing objectives simultaneously – all while reducing cost and delivery time compared to identical, individual security assessments, penetration testing and social engineering engagements.
