IT Compliance to Keep Business Protected
Developing governance risk and compliance (GRC) cyber security policies, process documentation, and ensuring your staff are following them can be an exhausting task. Doing this for multiple frameworks or regulatory bodies can feel nearly impossible without a full time IT compliance officer.
GRC basically covers how an organization strategizes their IT endeavors, ensuring proper protocols are followed. A well implemented and complete GRC architecture groups all business-related risks, rules, and information into one foolproof strategy while including all the company’s stakeholders in the process.
With Cyber Guards Managed GRC services, we write tailored policies and process documents for you. We also ensure that your staff are following these policies through our continuous compliance checks.

Comprehensive IT Compliance Approach
There are many different areas that you may need IT compliance in like following protocols for Sarbanes/Oxley, PCI or HIPAA. Most standards fall into one of these categories, ensuring you can meet compliance across many standards if you’re diligent with these:
Disaster Recovery: It’s imperative to have a sound process to restore backups. Disaster recovery standards reduce downtime, ensuring continued productivity and revenue flow.
Data Loss Prevention: Data loss can be devastating. Effective compliance standards can help to protect backups, recovery, and redundancy.
Access and Identity Control: This is used to define authentication and authorization rules.
Control over Data Sharing: It’s important to have strict control over data sharing, not just with the public, but with staff and customers as well.
Incident Response: The timing by which you respond to mitigate, report, and investigate a data breach is crucial.
Protection Against Malware: Installing antivirus and anti-malware protects from malicious code. All standards generally require it across servers and user devices.
Monitoring and Reporting: Businesses will be open to persistent threats if you don’t create reports and monitoring procedures for admins to use regularly.
