Compliance Audit & Guidance

A Minatio compliance audit is a comprehensive review of your organization's adherence to regulatory guidelines. Our Independent professional security consultants will evaluate the strength and thoroughness of compliance preparations and adherence. Auditors will review many targets including but not limited to, security polices, user access controls and risk management procedures over the course of a compliance audit.

 

What, precisely, is examined in our compliance audits will vary depending upon whether an organization is a public or private company, what kind of data it handles and if it transmits or stores sensitive financial data and under what regulations the audit may be required. For instance, Sarbanes-Oxley requirements mean that any electronic communication you have must be backed up and secured with reasonable disaster recovery infrastructure. Healthcare providers that store or transmit e-health records, such as personal health information, are subject to alternative regulations. Financial services companies who transmit credit card data are most certainly subject to PCI DSS requirements. In each case, your organization must be able to demonstrate compliance by producing a comprehensive audit trail.

 

Minatio compliance auditors will generally ask your CIOs, CTOs and IT administrators a combination of targeted questions over the course of a thorough audit. These may include questions such as but by no means limited to, what users were added and when, who has left the company, whether user IDs were revoked and which IT administrators have access to which critical systems. IT administrators usually prepare for compliance audits using event log managers and robust change management process software, these will allow tracking and documenting authentication and controls in your IT systems. Minatio will strive to independently audit in a thorough and helpful manner enabling your organization to be fully compliant and will therefore not be not subject to costly fines or sanctions.
