The Aegenis Group introduced ARIS (Aegenis Regulatory Intelligence Service) this week, a new service designed to monitor and analyze legislative trends and events that effect data security and privacy in the Payments Industry. The new service will allow clients to review new and forthcoming legislation and its expected impact on the industry. Included in the service will be the expert analysis of Dr. Heather Mark, PhD, CISSP, CIPP who will lead the Regulatory Analysis line of business for The Aegenis Group.
Dr. Mark's experience in the payments space, coupled with her doctorate in public policy, offers a unique and comprehensive insight into the legislative activities that can impact the payments industry. "The Aegenis Group is a leader in providing companies with the knowledge they need to make the hard decisions about their security and compliance posture," says Rob Caulfield, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of TrustCommerce. "Dr. Mark's expertise in regulatory compliance offers unparalleled insight into the impact that state and federal regulation will have on our industry. These issues require determined attention, coupled with a highly qualified proficiency, which is both rare and invaluable. These attributes are values that Dr. Mark and The Aegenis Group deliver consistently, while presenting tangible returns on expenditures in regards to both capital investments and resources."
According to Michael Dahn, Executive Vice President and Founder of The Aegenis Group, the new service is the result of increasing client requests. "As the industry has evolved, we have seen more and more companies that want to proactively monitor forthcoming legislation. With this service we address that need to know what may be happening in the future, and offer them Dr. Mark's expert analysis. Her perspective represents the intersection of security and compliance." Mr. Dahn further said that the service has been met with enthusiasm. "As we developed the service we gathered opinions and suggestions from customers and prospects. They are excited about the prospect of being able to maintain a watch on regulation, without having to devote internal resources to the matter."
The new line of business will offer its clients news alerts, weekly summaries, and legislative analysis. In addition, clients can request special research projects on issues of particular interest to them. Among the topics already covered Sentry are the FACTA lawsuits and the effort on the part of state governments to legislate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
