Security Compliance

Why do businesses need to focus on Security Compliance?

Our increasingly digitized world has provided many avenues for innovation and creativity to flourish, but with it comes numerous risks and dangers. More frequently these days, we hear news about a new exploit or security compromise that has caused irrevocable damage to a company’s reputation, finances, or in some cases, its ability to function at all. With this growing concern, the government has begun requiring its contractors to maintain an effective and compliant security environment for doing business. Because of this, Information Security goes beyond just IT or legal concerns, but rather, encompasses an operational challenge required to conduct business at all. In this era, it has become increasingly important to consider the cyber security infrastructure of your company, and ensure it is adequately prepared for any trials the future possesses.

Kreative's Security Compliance Support

We are experts in guiding organizations through the process of achieving DFARS Compliance by implementing NIST 800-171 security measures for defense against unwarranted cyber incidents. United States Department of Defense contractors that collect, store, or transmit Covered Defense Information (CDI) or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) are required to comply with DFARS 7012 compliance regulations as of December 31, 2017. All prime contractors and their subcontractors must comply with DFARS or risk losing their corresponding government contract….and Kreative can help!

Our Approach to Security Compliance

The graphic below illustrates Kreative’s approach to Security compliance. We begin by performing Gap analysis to your target security standard(s) to create a baseline for ‘as-is’ security environment. Following the gap analysis, we partner with you to develop a plan for your ‘to-be’ secured environment. With a sound plan in mind, we take off by developing policies, implementing technical solutions, and delivering training all leading up to the internal audit to pulse where you now stand towards compliance. Finally, we reach the deployment stage, where all the policies, tools, training and internal controls align to improve your security compliance!
To stay abreast of any cyber-attacks, security compliance requires continuous monitoring. At the response stage, we work with you to establish processes and tools to regularly monitor and update your security posture against any new potential threats – working always to keep your information safe!
