CompliancePoint, an information security consulting and services provider, announces the launch of its Cloud Compliance Program that provides the customers of cloud and hosting service providers with a seamless approach to achieve and maintain compliance. Although cloud and hosting environments offer businesses a viable option, these solutions may not fully address all compliance requirements including technical and physical controls not associated with the cloud or hosting provider.
CompliancePoint’s Cloud Compliance Program lets cloud and hosting providers offer their customers a complete approach that addresses all of a customer’s information security requirements. The program also lets cloud and hosting providers offer a value-added service and gain a competitive edge.
Components of the Cloud Compliance Program include the following services:
- Compliance Assessments (Regulatory and Industry) that assess an organization’s operational, IT and physical controls
- Network vulnerability scanning and penetration testing services
- Development information security and regulatory compliance policies and procedures
- Daily logging and monitoring services
- Security Awareness Training (HIPAA, PCI, ISO)
- Compliance Automation Portal creates a compliance program, correlating compliance controls, storing and centralizing required evidence, policies and procedures including the management of tasks associated with governance, risk and compliance activities
- Information Security Consulting Services (Compliance, Remediation, BC/DR, IT)
“Our experience has shown that cloud and hosting service providers only address about 25% of the necessary compliance activities,” explains Jerry Wyble, VP and Practice Manager for CompliancePoint. “That leaves their customers vulnerable to many information security concerns. By offering our Cloud Compliance Program cloud and hosting service providers can address all of their customers’ information security requirements.”
CompliancePoint’s information security staff have experience solving the challenges associated with cloud-based solutions and hosting environments. CompliancePoint personnel hold numerous regulatory and industry certifications and keep abreast of the latest technology advances in information security.
HIPAAClouds.com, a CompliancePoint partner and reseller of the Cloud Compliance Program, leverages the program to help their customers achieve and maintain their HIPAA compliance requirements. “Compliance is a key issue and driver for our customers as they consider moving their applications to the cloud,” comments David Kaufman, CEO of HIPAAClouds.com. “Being able to offer our customers a complete lifecycle solution for their HIPAA Compliance needs is a key advantage for us. In addition, we sought a partner whose offerings and expertise are closely aligned with our own advanced security practices.”
