(PRWEB) February 17, 2010
iCorps Technologies, a leader in delivering solid, business-driven IT solutions and services, announced today that it has received the CompTIA Security Trustmark.™ The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is the leading trade association for the world's information technology (IT) industry.
"The CompTIA Security Trustmark signifies that iCorps Technologies adheres to our industry's highest standards for security practices and business processes in critical areas such as data protection, personnel security, and access management," said Steve Hunt, senior director, Trustmark Programs, CompTIA.
"This is a significant certification, especially given the increased emphasis on data protection and security," says Michael Hadley, iCorps CEO, president, and co-founder.
Nationwide, the focus on data security at the corporate level has intensified, a result of recent, significant breaches of corporate data that have put U.S. consumers' credit card and personal information at risk.
On March 1, 2010, Massachusetts will enforce what is considered the nation's most comprehensive data protection and privacy law. New Massachusetts data privacy regulations (201 CMR 17.00) will enhance a 2007 law (Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 93H), and require that companies and organizations - regardless of their size or location - take more serious security measures on how they collect, use, and store the personal information of any resident of the Commonwealth.
For the past several months, iCorps has been assisting its clients to ensure that they are in compliance with all the requirements of Massachusetts 201 CMR 17.00 in time for the March 1, 2010 deadline.
In addition, the IT services and consulting company addresses a broad spectrum of threats that affect the safety and compliance of its clients' operations, with security services that provide the best protection for the entire IT environment. Services include: managed security; email threat management; risk assessment; security awareness training; establishing security policies and procedures; maintenance of security information; and iCorps Guardian, the company's comprehensive solution for data backup, off-site storage, and business continuity.
To earn the CompTIA Security Trustmark iCorps Technologies was audited independently by IT security experts to assess the company's security policies, capabilities, practices, and processes in areas such as:
- Security technologies, including firewalls, anti-Virus/malware/spyware and intrusion detection;
- Vulnerability assessment detection;
- Data encryption;
- Technical employee knowledge/expertise;
- Security clearances and background checks;
- Physical and hardware security; and
- Permissions, passwords, and other security requirements.
Hadley notes, "Our CompTIA Security Trustmark provides the added confirmation and assurance to all of our customers that iCorps adheres to the highest industry standards for all of our critical security services."
