A Partnership That Brings Peace of Mind
TCT’s compliance consulting gives you confidence and peace of mind in the midst of an overwhelming compliance engagement. We’ve been there and we know what it’s like to try to manage security and compliance efforts when you’re under-resourced or under-experienced.
We’ve done engagements across PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, SOC, ISO, NIST, and many others. There’s no standard we’ll shy away from.
TCT respects and appreciates the relationships we’ve formed with Service Providers, Consultants, Assessors, and Auditors. We don’t compete with our clients who do consulting, and we’ll never poach business from those we serve.
TCT compliance consulting gives you:
- Expertise without the bravado
- Complete support at every step
- Confidence and clarity
- Simplified and streamlined compliance management
Compliance is like a black box for most people. Total Compliance Tracking pulls back that curtain, brings clarity to compliance, and makes the path easy to follow. In TCT, you get a partner who gets in the trenches with you. If something goes boom, we dive in and help out.
What to expect from TCT consulting
We take a two-phase approach to your compliance engagement. Here’s what you can expect:
Initial Compliance Validation
The ultimate objective of this phase is to validate that you’re in compliance with the standards that you’re aiming to be compliant with.
Gap assessment. This gives us a good view of where you stand today compared to your compliance requirements. We’ll also perform a risk assessment of the organization.
Policies and procedures. Develop robust policy and procedure documentation that governs how things should be done within your organization.
Compliance system. Tackle the issues identified from the gap assessment, in a prioritized fashion. As we go through this process, we’ll conduct weekly meetings with you to make assignments, answer questions, and keep people accountable.
Training. Your team will probably need training in one or more areas:
- Security awareness
- Incident response
- Secure development
Audit assistance. If you need a third-party audit, we’ll come on-site, sit with you, guide the process, and act as an intermediary with your Assessor. Afterwards, we’ll help to coordinate any remediation elements.
Don’t need a third-party audit? TCT can act as your internal auditor. We know what needs to be in place, how it should be set up, what evidence is necessary and the tools/configurations that will and won’t meet the mark.
Once you’re compliant, you can’t simply achieve compliance and walk away from it — you’ll need to proactively maintain it throughout the year. Depending on the compliance standard, there will be a list of items to be performed every day, week, month, quarter and semi-annually.
TCT will set up a structure that helps you hit manageable targets throughout the year so that you can gain peace and comfort that you’re on track with your efforts. And you’ll have the assurance that you won’t get blindsided by any big surprises at the end of the compliance year or your next annual audit.
“Before we switched to TCT I was leaving the house at 9 am and getting home at 1 or 2 in the morning, five to six days a week. It went on for about 60 days. The TCT team took our deadline to heart and they worked probably as many if not more hours helping us get through it. They jumped right in with a shovel and helped me dig that hole.” — Jamie Hefty, CIO, Phoenix Financial Services
