Governance, Risk, Regulatory
secureCENTRX puts the GRR in Compliance
How do organization get the most out of the audits/assessment that they perform?
CMMC, CIS, PCI, HIPAA, CCPA, GLB, NIST, FEDRAMP, SOC2, GDPR or others all require significant participation from any organization’s staff. It is secureCENTRX mission to curate the maximum return on that investment and to infuse a sense of opportunity for continuous improvement for everyone. This is all clearly in alignment with business objectives.
Audits are leveraged to determine controls for regulatory compliance, customer assurance, and to increase the security of any organization.
Organizations striving to optimize already stretched thin resources to meet audit requirements resulting in audit fatigue, incomplete data gathering, and erroneous findings.
Audits are based upon a standard. Standards contain control language. A tactical assessment evaluates an organization against its compliance with security controls.
Compliance with the security control can be evaluated by examining the security control in detail to determine what is and is not in scope for a particular security control.
secureCENTRX is hard-wired to support all of the goals of the audit cycle, but the principal outcome is at the core of the values of our team and the customer: to make an organization more secure, robust and resilient.
Our approach is based on demystifying the process with clear, motivated and contextual communications.
The results will always be motivations for positivity within an institution…now, that’s different!
