information is a critical asset. It may be found
in printed reports, handwritten notes, electronic databases or in
the strategies and policies you use to operate effectively and efficiently.
Information must be protected against
loss, destruction or misuse, whether that be through accident, carelessness,
or malicious behavior. It is for this reason that the International
Standards Organization developed ISO 17799 - the International
Security Standard. This Standard was the basis for
HIPAA's Security rules, as well as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB)
Act for financial industry, and many others.
We use ISO 17799 auditing guidelines
and tools in all of our Security audits, risk assessments and remediation
planning. By choosing this "gold standard," we have been
able to help our clients pinpoint areas requiring their attention
which are not narrowly focused on compliance, but broadly focused
on protecting your assets - and operating effectively and cost-efficiently.
The goal is always to ensure the continuity
of your business operations, minimize damage and maximize return
on investments and business opportunities.
we know the real issue is finding the best way to deliver the best
product you can - whether it be medical care, customer service,
or software applications. At the same time, you must remain compliant
with the barrage of regulations - and profitable.
