The Compliance Overview
If your organization is subject to IT compliance mandates such as FDIC, GLBA, HIPAA, HITECH, NCUA, OCC and PCI DSS, you are required to undergo regular risk assessments in order to identify reasonably foreseeable risks that – if left unchecked – could lead to service interruption or unauthorized disclosure, misuse, alteration, or destruction of confidential information. Then, having determined your risks, you must initiate and maintain security controls that are in line with standards established by regulators and best practices. Effectively auditing and evaluating those controls require deep expertise and experience in IT security and up-to-date knowledge of regulatory details.
DAG Tech’s IT Audit
DAG Tech’s information security experts thoroughly audit your existing security controls. This involves the collection and examination of your practices and procedures documentation as well as technological control data.
Also included in your audit are key personnel interviews, a walk-through of your physical location(s) and any other asset(s) that impact the effectiveness of your information security program. These measures are designed to verify that existing controls adhere to your organization’s risk assessment, best practice standards, and applicable regulatory compliance requirements.
Through this thorough and highly-structured process, we identify critical deficiencies and control weaknesses, verify that the controls meet the appropriate standards and document each step of the process.
