360 Advanced has been providing comprehensive cybersecurity compliance examination and assessment services since 2007.
Our 360CyberCompli managed cybersecurity compliance services are designed to provide program-level cybersecurity and compliance solutions tailored to the specific needs of your organization.
These services are delivered to you through an outsourced, holistic, efficient model to meet your cybersecurity compliance needs, utilize compliance as an asset, and allow you to focus on moving your business forward.
Our tailored approach offers a combination of executive oversight and strategic planning to ensure that your cyber compliance program moves forward swiftly, efficiently, and strategically. We offer guidance from our team in developing the plans necessary for success while delivering on those promises.
Your specialized 360 Advanced delivery team will help you develop effective internal controls that can aptly manage risks and accurately communicate your organization’s ability to reach various third-party cyber compliance requirements. This process will result in your organization reaching and exceeding your cyber compliance goals and obligations, while creating a stronger and more secure organization.
The 360 Advanced CyberCompli program is provided within a professional service model through our proven approach. It is built around our four-phased lifecycle and methodology: Understand, Analyze, Execute, and Report.
Understanding your business is a critical first step. Our process includes getting to know your current strategy and anticipated cybersecurity compliance needs and requirements (e.g., SOC 2, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITRUST, FedRAMP, NIST CSF, etc.), along with company size, goals, growth plans, budgetary constraints, types of data within your current and future state systems, and the current state of maturity of relevant considerations (see list below). This information allows us to work together to develop a customized plan that aligns with both your business objectives and your cybersecurity compliance needs. Relevant areas of consideration include, but are not limited to:
- Information Security Policies and Governance
- Human Resource Security and Training
- Asset Management
- Identity and Access Management
- Physical and Environmental Security
- Operations Security
- Network Security
- System Acquisition, Development, and Maintenance
- Vendor Management
- Incident Management
- Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
Once we understand your priorities and business requirements, we work with you to develop a customized high-level plan that (a) aligns with your business’s needs and (b) moves you forward at a realistic and sensible pace, while (c) staying within budgetary constraints.
We know that plans and priorities evolve over time. Our program accounts for those considerations. Working closely as a part of your team, we adjust our plans to accommodate changing needs.
Analyzing the state of your current processes and controls is not only an ongoing need, but one that is completed within the first months of our engagement. It is critical to have a more detailed look at all relevant areas of the business against risks while considering size, complexity, and compliance needs. This process helps to identify where controls are or are not robust, repeatable, designed suitably and efficiently, and placed into operation. An understanding of this information facilitates further refinement of our plans through milestones and timelines. As a result of this phase, we work with you to agree to the plan with a tailored and detailed roadmap of milestones that includes the initiatives to be undertaken, targeted results, and key measures of achievement.
Executing the plan means ensuring efficient and effective methods are utilized to mature your cybersecurity compliance posture, while not disrupting the core business. While it is critical for us to work with key personnel at all levels, we ensure that avoiding your operational disruptions is a priority. Time required with personnel is planned, necessary, collaborative, and productive. Where appropriate, and prior to work beginning on various initiatives, recommendations will be provided for management’s consideration. The 360 Advanced team will use both strategic and tactical methods of delivery to efficiently improve your cybersecurity compliance posture, help document and / or define the controls you have in place, ensure controls and the greater program are ready for compliance testing, and facilitate oversight of third-party assurance testing activities. We plan for the future alongside you as your business continues to grow and changes to the compliance landscape occur.
Beyond our agreed-upon cyber compliance plans, it’s critical for us to be engaged as part of your business operations. We believe that continual collaboration and consultation are necessary to ensure that our team can provide the knowledge and expertise to support key business decisions, and to ensure that the program stays in line with changing business conditions and initiatives. Similarly, we are prepared to handle the scalability of unexpected short-term efforts and special projects that inevitably arise over time (e.g., risk assessments, penetration testing, privacy assessments, internal audits, etc.).
Reporting and regular communications of our ongoing progress against the established plans at both the functional and executive levels to ensure alignment with your organizational strategy are imperative. Reporting functions will include:
- Real-time dashboards tracking the progress of each initiative
- Ad-hoc calls to ensure timely messaging of risks, responses to questions you have and are facing from clients and prospects, etc.
- Monthly formal reports summarizing work completed and upcoming initiatives to be performed, and
- Quarterly presentations completed by your vCCO within your executive management meetings to review accomplishments of the quarter, future initiatives, along with anything else relevant.
You deserve a conversation, not a questionnaire.
