Who Needs This Solution

When Meeting Industry Compliance is Necessary

We have taken what we’ve learned about building strong security programs and applied it to industry standards. We start by learning about your organization and current security practices, identify where the gaps are, and guide your organization towards better security practices. Doing so will simultaneously ensure you comply with any requirements you may face.

Services to help with compliance preperation

Secure Shield provides the expertise necessary to review and advise organizations on PCI DSS compliance. If your organization stores, process, transmits or accepts credit card and/or PII information, then you need some level of PCI compliance.  We can help your organization define your PCI environment, determine compliance gaps, and provide necessary attestations of compliance.

Gap Assessment

Gap assessments are conducted with regulatory requirements in mind. We’ll take a look at where your security program is relative to the requirements, and then provide you with the appropriate adjustments needed for you to become compliant.

So, it’s critical that you identify the vendors working for you and determine the level of risk they bring. Our VRM services help you to pinpoint the vendors that present the most risk to your organization—equally evaluating all third-party vendors and bringing your weakest links to the surface.
