Compliance requires doing all the right things. But if you can’t prove it with documentation, you may fail an audit or investigation, or lose a lawsuit. Proving cybersecurity and compliance is like a 3-legged stool, that cannot stand without all of its legs.
It is very easy to create policies to align with your compliance requirements. It is harder to keep up with documenting your procedures, which will change over time. Creating evidence of compliance is an ongoing process, to validate that procedures are implemented, and to identify any gaps that need to be addressed. HIPAA requires that you keep all documentation – policies, procedures, and evidence – for six years. It is critical for businesses to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements to survive and thrive in today’s business environment. By partnering with an MSSP like us, you can ensure that your resources and processes are set up to meet all compliance needs.
