/ Compliance Drivers
Federal Information Security Management Act
The high-level compliance driver today for the federal government is the Federal Information Security Management Act guidelines.
FISMA is United States legislation that defines a comprehensive framework to protect government information, operations, and assets against natural or man-made threats.
Any private sector company that has a contractual relationship with the government, whether to provide services, support a federal program, or receive grant money, must comply with FISMA.
Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program
FedRAMP is a US government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The FedRAMP PMO mission is to promote the adoption of secure cloud services across the Federal Government by providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment.
General Data Protection Regulation
Within the European Union (EU), policies such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or Network Infrastructure Security Directive (NIS Directive) are radically changing information security governance frameworks, both on the technical and reporting levels.
GDPR applies to any organization that handles the personal information of any resident in the EU, regardless of where in the world that organization is located.
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
Cybersecurity is a growing challenge for many hospitals, health systems, health plans, and senior living organizations as threats and vulnerabilities constantly evolve.
It is important for healthcare organizations to assess what types of information they have (and where/how it is stored and accessed) that could be vulnerable to a cyber attack.
Payment Card Industry
From customers to merchants and financial institutions, the security of cardholder data affects everybody.
Securing cardholder data is vital to preserving customer trust, ensuring compliance, and will benefit your organization in the long term.
GLBA applies to companies who receive customers’ personal financial information, regardless of whether or not they are financial institutions. GLBA has two main rules:
The Safeguards Rule requires all financial institutions to design, implement and maintain safeguards to protect customer information.
The Financial Privacy Rule governs the collection and disclosure of customers’ personal financial information by financial institutions. The Financial Privacy Rule requires financial institutions to provide each consumer with a privacy notice at the time the consumer relationship is established and annually thereafter.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is a federal law that established sweeping auditing and financial regulations for public companies.
Being in SOX compliance and complying with regulatory standards is nearly impossible without the correct security solutions in place.
Center for Internet Security
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls are internationally-recognized cybersecurity best practices for defense against common threats.
They are a consensus-developed resource that brings together expert insight about cyber threats, business technology, and security.
Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification
The CMMC framework consists of maturity processes and cybersecurity best practices from multiple cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and other references, as well as inputs from the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Department of Defense (DoD).
As a part of the CMMC, all contractors will need to be assessed by a Certified Third-Party Organization (C3PAO) and deemed as compliant before they can continue their DoD contract or be awarded a new one.
