Cyber Security Compliance

Any company is at risk of falling victim to a cyber attack. Mindcore helps businesses in New Jersey and Florida meet cyber security compliance standards to protect sensitive data and repair cyber security issues found in your infrastructure. You can be confident that your company is compliant when you work with our IT experts at Mindcore.

What is Cyber Security Compliance?

Cyber security compliance is the act of preparing your organization to meet the data privacy and security standards that apply to your specific industry regulations, government policies, or contractual terms. Failure to effectively follow compliance regulations can have serious effects on your business. Our team creates clear guidelines for your company that helps you take the first steps toward assessing your organization’s readiness for meeting compliance. 

We’ll start with performing vulnerability and risk assessments to identify security gaps and vulnerabilities within your IT system. From there, our team will create a plan to fill in the gaps between your existing infrastructure and compliance requirements. We’ll build a strong cyber security framework within your organization that targets your current infrastructure’s vulnerabilities to prevent data breaches and subsequent regulatory penalties.

 Compliance Consulting Experts

Your organization’s ability to meet compliance requirements relies heavily on cyber security. However, as standards and regulations evolve, it’s almost impossible for companies to know what to look out for and how to achieve IT compliance effectively. Our consultants at Mindcore can help your organization ensure compliance by building you a plan that follows cyber security best practices and meets today’s policies and standards.

Our Cyber Security Compliance Program

Compliance requirements vary widely from state to state, and some apply regardless of where your business is located. It’s important to figure out what regulations or laws you need to comply with first. At Mindcore, we’ll help you identify the specific laws and requirements for your state, and other states, territories, and countries you are operating in.

From there, we’ll create a cyber security compliance plan based on those specific laws and regulations and the type of data your company is storing and processing. We’ll put in place a more reliable cyber security program and perform the following steps to ensure your cyber security framework is in compliance with industry standards and state regulations.
Vulnerability Assessment

Our vulnerability assessments identify risks and vulnerabilities in your IT system. Using our expertise, we find the root cause of security weaknesses in your infrastructure and evaluate what security controls are already in place.

Risk Assessment

We conduct comprehensive risk assessments that prioritize your organization’s most critical security flaws and gaps. We create a risk profile for each vulnerability, assigning a severity score to each one, based on the data at risk and the potential damage of a cyberattack.

Security Controls

Our experts implement security controls based on your company’s risk tolerance as identified in the risk assessment and compliance requirements. Security controls we may implement include data encryption, password policies, network firewalls, and incident response plans to keep company data secure.

Implement Policies & Procedures

We implement new systems, policies, and procedures to meet the requirements of various regulations and enhance the security of your organization. These new policies and procedures will help align, revise, and audit your company’s compliance with security requirements.

Regular Monitoring & Testing

We continually evaluate your company’s compliance as new requirements appear and existing ones change. We also perform regular tests of your security and process controls to help identify any new risks and ensure regulations are still being met.

CISO Services

Our CISO services involve appointing your business a Chief Information Security Officer responsible for managing and maintaining your cyber security framework and compliance, providing you with regular updates and 24/7 support for all aspects of your security program.

Major Cyber Security Compliance Requirements

Cyber security compliance standards are set by a variety of regulatory requirements, which may apply both locally and internationally. We know that staying ahead of these standards can be overwhelming and expensive. Our cyber security experts at Mindcore can help your company navigate new cyber security compliance standards and meet these major requirements below.
