Peters & Associates, a Chicagoland-based leader in delivering technology and cybersecurity support services, announced today it has received the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ from CompTIA, the world’s leading tech organization.
The CompTIA Security Trustmark+ distinguishes organizations that use the security processes identified by the IT industry as generally accepted best practices and have been evaluated by an independent third-party assessor as meeting the criteria established by the CompTIA. Based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ is a comprehensive review of the security posture of any IT business, applicable across multiple industries and compliance regulations.
“Our entire organization worked hard to earn the Security Trustmark+ as it demonstrates our commitment to addressing the challenges of security compliance facing organizations today,” said Bruce Ward, Vice President of Business Strategy. “This designation shows that we adhere to the industry’s highest standards for security practices and business processes related to data security.”
To earn the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ Peters & Associates successfully passed an independent assessment of their security policies, capabilities, practices, and processes against industry best practices 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
- Permissions, passwords and other security requirements
