Understanding Cybersecurity & Compliance

There are many instances where your small-or-medium-sized business may need to comply with specific security and data protection. If you plan to or currently do business in a country with strict privacy laws (like the European Union); focus your efforts in the healthcare or finance markets; or deal with a client that has high confidentiality standards, you are likely required to bring your data security up to the mandated standards.

The purpose of regulations, in general, is to safeguard private and sensitive consumer data, as well as infrastructure and company data, from unauthorized individuals. Malicious activity and the unlicensed distribution of consumer or user data can be avoided with compliance measures in place. It is important that your business begins to understand these requirements to ensure the safety of your information, avoid penalties and comply with mandated regulations.

Why Your Business Needs Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity protects your business’s information while simultaneously enabling compliance with mandated regulations. An IT company that has the expertise and skills to implement cybersecurity enhancements can help your business comply with mandated regulations. Use an IT company to assist with ramping up cybersecurity efforts by using the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework. This allows for a flexible and customizable approach to cybersecurity protocols. They can help by taking the time to review and understand the requirements.

The following standards require compliance for businesses based in New Jersey and New York.

  • NIST 800-171 | National Institute of Standard and Technology
  • 23 NYCRR 500 | New York State Department of Financial Services Mandate
  • DFARS | Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement
  • FISMA | The Federal Information Security Management Act
  • GDPR | General Data Protection Regulation
  • HIPPA | Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
  • SOX | Sarbanes–Oxley Act
  • GLBA | Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
