More Info on Compliance

Overview

There are numerous compliance and regulatory requirements covering various governance, technical and human information security issues. Some, like ISO27001:2005, are security management-centred. Other put a heavier emphasis on technology. For example, PCI DSS concentrates on safeguards and controls protecting cardholders data. Finance-oriented compliance, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, FSA (see FSA Annex 2), and the upcoming insurance Solvency II, require thorough internal audits and strong audit trials security. Solvency II also emphasises risk management and operational effectiveness of key systems to capture, process, and report data. For companies and organisations that operate on the US market, FISMA and HIPAA can be critical.

Purely technical aspects of information security must be fully supported and reinforced by appropriate managerial procedures and controls. These procedures and controls, as well as all the actual countermeasures and their use, must be thoroughly documented. Our consultants can offer qualified assistance in solving a variety of information security management and technical issues, thus assisting you in meeting specific compliance and regulatory demands.

Arhont can help you to plan, implement and verify highly effective data and systems monitoring, control and auditing mechanisms, organise necessary information security training and awareness courses, execute compliance-centric security reviews, and prepare all needed documentation including security policies, guidelines, procedures, standards and manuals. We can also provide regular security audits tailored to satisfy any particular compliance needs your company or organisation is facing.
